This unique story offers a holistic description of the war in the skies over Angola where the narrative places the reader in the cockpit such that you can almost feel the oppressive tropical heat. It reads like a novel but has the ring of truth that can only come from veterans who had the advantage of an accurate contemporary diary. Eduardo González Sarría and Lionel Reid must be congratulated on producing a worthy candidate for the aviation book of the year. It can be thoroughly recommended and if you choose to read just one aviation book this year – this is it. Outstanding!

I can recommend this brilliant historical work about the Angolan war in the air to any aviation enthusiast.

Memoirs of a senior Cuban MiG pilot combined with brand-new perspectives from South African, Cuban, Angolan and Soviet combatants provide the most thrilling and complete account yet of air combat during the Angolan conflict.


An inspirational full-colour gift book for travellers and readers who love Africa

Africa is a complex continent of 55 different countries, a vibrant tapestry of culture, tradition and people. For more than two decades, Dr Rutendo Hwindingwi has done business across this diverse expanse, from Nigeria to Kenya, Egypt to South Africa, taking inspiration from the varied landscapes he has traversed and the multitude of men and women he has met.
Reflections of a Son of the Soil, an inspiring anthology of proverbs from every corner of the continent, is Rutendo’s tribute to Africa and the wisdom of its people.
