The latest book review

This memoir is a fascinating read because it raises important questions about the role of a memoir in contributing to serious discourse on South Africa’s armed struggle. The book comes across as poorly researched and possibly revisionist, often ignoring well acknowledged historical facts, and context, in a way not uncommon to memoirs but potentially harmful to current and future discourse on the armed struggle.
