This is the book which marked Frederick Forsyth's transition from journalist to author.
A record of one of the most brutal conflicts the Third World has ever suffered, it has become a classic of modern war reporting.
But it is more than that. It voices one man's outrage not only at the extremes of human violence, but also at the duplicity and self-interest of the Western Governments ' most notably, the British, who tacitly accepted or actively aided that violence.
