What the Critics Say

"...Hoare, the legendary mercenary commander of Congo fame...does not fit the popular image of the mercenary who will fight for - or against - anyone for money.... In a concise, graphic way, he gives a feeling and flavour to the mercenary soldier that few others ever have...." (Peter Worthington, Editor, Ottawa Sun)

    "Never judge a book by it's cover (price)"

    Having spent more years in Africa than elsewhere and currently residing in Lagos, I am always fascinated by Africas evolution. This is a remarkably entertaining and informative listen. Not only was Colonel Hoare an accomplished military commander this book and his other self authored books demonstrate he could have had a successful career as a writer and/or voice actor.
    I'm surprised the final story alone, the recovery of the female missionary Doctor, hasn't been noticed by the movie industry.
    I have also read the excellent Sechelles Affair and plan to proceed to Congo Mercenaries which I recently downloaded.

    Story
    "Quite Enjoyable"

    its mostly about the shenanigans mercenaries got up to before the congo turned into a total 5h1t show. Considering the subject matter it is very light. Mike Hoare seems like a decent enough guy considering. He has old timey sensibilities- for example he cared more about the proper etiquette when hunting buffalo with machine gun than he did for the lives of his porters- but the man has stories worth telling.

    it wont take too long to get through this. definitely worth a go for the price.
