About the Book
Charles Hebden finds life very difficult indeed once he has left the Special Forces. He is constantly on the lookout for changes to his lifestyle both at work and at play. Anything which might offer excitement or just a change of scenery becomes almost an obsession with him. He tries many things in a number of overseas countries and even volunteered to be a Mercenary in Angola. However, after his first experience into Bush Country with a combined Troop of Local soldiers and Mercenaries he realised, just in time, that the Mercenaries life was one far removed from that of the Special Forces soldier.
