  • By G.I.Forbes on 10 March 2015

    This could have been an excellent account of the Mau Mau but it is missing one vital element that would have changed the whole meaning of the book.The author mentions the oath of allegiance that had to be taken but he should have quoted it word for word and given the details of initiation ceremonies and the conditions and practices that accompanied the swearing in.If the author had done this he would have understood the animosity and distrust that existed between Europeans and the Kikuyu. I know because I was there.A good try but should do better.

    Like any historial event, it is hard to understand these situations.I thought that this book was very enlightening although after reading it I passed it on to Kenyans friend who had issues with some of the content....Yet well worth the read although diffinitely not holidday material....MAKES YOU THINK
