Men of War, The fighting few who took on the world
THE FINAL CHAPTER IN HANNES’ WESSELS BEST-SELLING TRILOGY
With roots going back to Cecil Rhodes’ buccaneering Pioneers, wild at heart, aggressive and fearless, SAS Lieutenant Richard Stannard was born and bred to fight against the odds so the Rhodesian war was a welcome adventure for a tough young man with fire in his eyes. Never frightened to lead, he tackled his foe with skill, incredible courage and almost unbelievable good cheer.
Serving in both the SAS and the Selous Scouts, before joining the South African Recces, Stannard fought alongside the best black and white soldiers of the Bushwar including legends of the conflict like Chris Schulenburg and Martin Chikondo. In the process, he carved a name for himself as one of the greatest fighting men of his generation.
If you have read A Handful of Hard Men by Hannes Wessels, then you will thoroughly enjoy Men Of War. Strong stuff, based on the experiences of some extraordinary soldiers. One of the best in a long time.
