From the searing heat of the Zambezi valley to the freezing cold of the Chimanimani mountains in Rhodesia; from the bars in Port St John’s in the Transkei to the Drakensberg Mountains in South Africa; to the slums of Maputo Mocambique and the violence and corruption of Beira Mocamique to the beauty of the Portuguese Islands. This is one man’s story of his fight against terror and survival in a world that no longer had any use for him or his skills.

Twice decorated  with  the Member Of The Legion of Merit ( MLM ) and the Military Forces  Commendation  (MFC) Andrew Balaam was a member of the Rhodesian Light Infantry and later the Selous Scouts for twelve years. This is his account of his experiences whilst in the Rhodesian Light Infantry, Selous Scouts, Transkei and South African Government.

His story is brutally truthful , frightening and sometimes humorous. It is also the  story of the final hours of one of the finest armies in the world, The fight for power amongst  senior Amy Officers , the  fighting, back stabbing and spying as seen through the eyes of the author.
