About the Book

Leonard Gill, a Kenya-born English lad, will keep you enthralled by stories of the fight against Mau-Mau terrorists in the forests of Kenya. As we have come to expect from Len, this book will keep you chuckling at some of his tales and those of the African troops with whom he served.

About the Author

Born in Kenya, East Africa, of English parents in December 1930, Len lived there until 1989.

Even in a period of anti-Mau Mau Rebellion operations Len found sensitive and happy incidents among the hell of bloodshed and killing. Africans dubbed him with the nickname Mpenda raha (he who enjoys a good time). Len insists that a shot-glass of humor helps the worries go down. Len served with African troops. With them, Len matured in a way that enabled him to balance horror with humor.

More Military Musings epitomizes Len's ability to relate with sensitivity and understanding his army adventures. He pulls no punches in tales of deadly serious conflict, but he mitigates these with merrier moments.

Len now lives in Glenwood Springs, Colorado with his wife, Kaye and Shih-tzu, Bandit.
