    'Prop' Geldenhuis's book is a fascinating mixture of family and personal progress welded together on a background of history. Always interesting, and easy to read, it is mainly the story of the growth and maturity of a talented pilot and leader. His careful research is reflected throughout the book and his operational experiences are described with a commendable lack of animosity towards the enemy. Thoroughly recommended for those interested in life as a pilot in Africa, in African history and in counter insurgency military history.

    This is a great personal account of a brief but important time in history. If these accounts were not recorded this would be lost forever. No matter what your political views the courage and fortitude of Rhodesians against overwhelming odds has to be admired. Great job Prop
