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.
