War isn't glamorous, war is hell and fear. but sometimes enemies can recognise compassion. Even in the strangest of ways.

The atrocities of the Angolan Civil War and the involvement of mercenary soldiers is tempered with the twist at the end. Worth reading.

This is a violent piece, heavily anchored in historical context, the Angolan Civil War. It’s written in the first person, which gives it a brisk pace and sense of immediacy throughout. Events are perceived through the first person device. It’s well developed in terms of the central characters. The brutality of the period is graphically described but not excessively so. The twist in the tale is unexpected but doesn’t jump out at you in an unrealistic way. A short story certainly worthy of Frederick Forsyth.
