"Once a Pilgrim" by Will Scully book
Hi Kids, Just read a really cool book, if you have any interest in Post-WW2 African conflict I would highly recommend this one. Not much geopolitical comment here, just an ex-SAS dude caught in the midst of the war in Sierra Leone. The battle of the Mammy Yoko Hotel is particularly interesting, where its pretty much Will and a borrowed LMG vs. a couple hundred RUF rebels, while the refugees are trying to make deals with the enemy or make a percentage ratting out their own side. Will won a Gallantry Medal for his actions. It might even prompt you to start a whole new gaming period! And you can get a copy cheap on the net from places like www.abebooks.com.
Tell 'em the Chuckster set ya! They won't know what the hell you're talking about, but do it anyway! Mo' reading, mo' better!
