In early 1997, Peter Penfold arrived in Sierra Leone as the British High Commissioner. This fascinating book describes not only his eventful three year tour but the background and subsequent events that placed this small country at the center of the world stage.

He gives a highly informed account of the subsequent events including the SAS Operation BARRAS - the rescue of the British military hostages. This is a very important account based on the most privileged knowledge.
