Heroes of Jadotville: The Soldiers' Story Reviews

  • David

    After seeing the movie recently I was eager to read more on the Jadotville incident and gain a better understanding of what happened. This was a fantastic recounting of the siege and the heroism of A Company. My only quibble was with the structure. The events of the siege are told first, then the background and then finally the aftermath. But it's great to see these brave soldiers finally getting the recognition they deserve

  • Paul Harper

    Every military and civilian peacekeeper should read this book.An excellent study of good leadership under pressure.
