Reviews

  • Interesting account, but one sided

    A interesting depiction of the war in Sudan. However it is very one sided from a colonist pout of view. Unsurprisingly the reader will identify racist undertones characteristic of the day and age the writer lived in
  • Extraordinary detail

    I just got the book earlier n all the detail in the book is amazing. I am a high schooler trying to read books that describe with non-childish words or phrases. This is just the book I needed thanx
