Soldier Ants of War: 40 Years After

Publisher Marketing: "Soldier Ants of War is a story about a war which lasted for 30 months in the heart of Africa. It is fiction that is based on actual experiences of two participants who were friends in School, who participated in different capacities in actual action in the war, who survived, and who went on to become specialist medical doctors at the cessation of hostilities. "Soldier Ants of War" represent actual events told in fiction form with narration of chilling events of war, the apathy and collusion of the international community, the doggedness of a people and their resort to unconventional maneuvers in desperate attempts to attain victory. Events that would appear benumbing are mixed with humor. Intrigues of war and politics are depicted without bias, for the reader to be the better judge. "Soldier Ants of War is a 70,000 word novel written by two academics and professionals who were physically present as High School students when it all happened! It embodies action, intrigues, love even during war, dangerous political manoeuvering between the world power and super powers, brutality, kindness by anonymous humanity, the song of birds and unpredictable jockeying with the destiny of a people, events which leave the reader longing for more of the riveting tales.
