A Whisper in the Reeds (hard cover) – Justin Taylor
235x 153, 221p. with some colour pages.
A gripping, personal account of one man’s journey through a border war that contributed to transforming a country from being the pariah of the world to a shining example of reconciliation, peace and hope.
First and foremost a soldier’s story, its told without self-aggrandisement and with a balance of sensitivity and the harsh realities of war. While the factual and detailed insights into the infamous 32 battalion are both intriguing and historically significant, it is in essence a human story that lays bare its soul that makes it so compelling. With the anguish and emotions experienced by the author laid bare coupled with his wry sense of humour, it is a story easy to identify with.
