As a military correspondent for Jane's Information Group in Britain for much of his career, he has covered conflicts on almost every continent. Examples of his stories are: Neall Ellis who flew helicopter gunships against the rebels in Sierra Leone and is currently flying support missions in Russian Mi-8s in Afghanistan, Al Venter going into combat with a bunch of South African 'Parabats' in a strike against enemy positions in Angola (where he was subsequently wounded), Mike Hoare's aborted invasion of the Seychelles a quarter of a century ago, an American mercenary in Iraq as well as a United States Navy rescue mission in Somalia. Then there is a tribute to his old friend Ron Reid-Dale, founder-commander of the Selous Scouts, a vivid profile of the RLI 'Incredibles' in a cross-border strike on enemy positions in Mozambique as well as a chapter by Colonel Brian Robinson, longest serving commander of the Rhodesian SAS.
