"A wonderful and well written book. Amazing (and quite sad) what went on that we didn't know
about. Loved it." - Anne R.
Hard to put down
"I really enjoyed this book, free from cinematic heroics it tells the story of one man's six week tour
in the Rhodesian Bush War. From a shaky start he manages to pull his amateurish African troops into
a force to be reckoned with.
"Full of human touches, I found it hard to put down and finished with a sigh of regret." - Phillip K.
A relentless story
"Author gives a blow-by-blow of his experiences as a DC right in the thick of the Rhodesian Bush
War. This ain't pretty, but an excellent description of what it was really like. Enjoyed this one." -
Fact meets fiction in Charlie Tango
"A Place Called Charlie Tango skilfully blends fact with fiction in this account of the Bush War as it
was fought in a remote part of Rhodesia during the late 1970s. It successfully captures the beauty,
the brutality and the paradoxes of that time and place, in a way which is both truthful but also
profoundly disturbing." - Nick
"This book is a great 'historical novel' [and]tells a cautionary tale of what "winning hearts and minds"
is all about." - Kris L.
