Warriors by Gerald Hanley

"Warriors" is a compelling account of the author's experiences during World War II while stationed in Somalia. Tasked with leading Somali soldiers in the British Army, the author confronts not only the harsh realities of a brutal and unforgiving desert war against insurgent tribes but also grapples with the psychological toll of isolation and the moral complexities of leadership and colonialism. The narrative delves deeply into themes of courage, loyalty, and the human condition, offering a poignant exploration of the burdens carried by those in command.
