Book Review: Shadows in the Sand

“In 2010 I heard that someone was willing to write our story. I knew I had the ability to write down my feelings and experiences, so I started to put them to paper. … It was only when I wrote them down that I began to realise what a remarkable life I'd had, because of one factor: my ability to analyse shadows in the sand.”

Book Review: Come back to Portofino

“The general public could not comprehend what their boys had gone through or how the war had changed them,” writes author James Bourhill at the conclusion of “Come back to Portofino – Through Italy with the 6th South African Armoured Division”.

Book review: The utility of force

General Rupert Smith published his “The Utility of Force – The Art of War in the Modern World” to well-deserved acclaim some years ago. The UK's Evening Standard called it “provocative and startling … an update of Clausewitz and Sun Tzu for our time”. British editor and author Max Hastings added in the Sunday Telegraph that it was “hard to overstate the devastating nature of this book as an indictment of almost everything the West has done in recent years, and is doing today. If [it] does not prompt red faces in Downing Street and at the White House, it is only because their occupants are too shameless to be capable of embarrassment.”

Book Review: The Art of War

Sun Tzu's “The Art of War” is arguably one of two great books written on the topic, the other being Major General Carl von Clausewitz's On War. Others might include “The Book of Five Rings” by the samurai warrior Miyamoto Musashi.
