Congo mercenary by Mike Hoare( Book )

21 editions published between 1967 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In July 1964, after four years of uneasy independence, the Democratic Republic of the Congo was engulfed by an armed rebellion that spread throughout the country like a bush fire. The rebel soldiers struck terror into the hearts of civilians and National Army soldiers alike. Faced with this situation, the Congolese government hired legendary mercenary leader Mike Hoare to quell the uprising and bring order to the country. In Congo Mercenary, Mike Hoare tells the true story of his resolute band of mercenaries during the Congo war. In fascinating detail, Hoare describes how the mercenaries were recruited and trained, and then recounts their adventures through four combat campaigns over an 18-month period during which they liberated Stanleyville, fought rebels in the hinterland, freed hundreds of European hostages and restored law and order to the Congo. Originally published in 1967, and now including a new foreword by Mike Hoare, Congo Mercenary is a well-written and historically important account of one of the most brutal rebellions in Africa, as well as an accurate and gritty depiction of the mercenary life

"Hoare was born in India to Irish parents and educated in England. He emigrated to Africa in 1948 and fell in love with the vast wilderness. Long before he became known as a mercenary leader in the Congo and Seychelles, he was exploring the interior of Africa in search of adventure and knowledge. This book takes you along on some of his most amazing journeys: Traveling from the Cape of Good Hope to Cairo on a motorcycle; Retracing the steps of the Victorian explorers seeking the source of the storied Nile; Searching for the lost city of the Kalahari Tracking the mysterious and enigmatic giant ape, Ufiti, to determine if the creature really existed; Sailing the treacherous waters of the Indian Ocean in Colin Archer; Trekking in Basutoland (now Lesotho); Racing against time (and historic floods) to save the lives of his wife and two workers who had contracted "the Fever" in the remote Okavango Delta. Mike Hoare was fortunate to arrive in Africa at a time when grand adventures (and misadventures) were still possible. As he recounts his forty-plus years in Africa, Hoare shares with the reader his deep reverence for the land and the people who call it home, as well as little-known tidbits of history. Don't miss this opportunity to explore Africa with one of its most adventurous and eloquent scribes
