River of Death
When the ice
was thick enough the tanks would come. Down from the hills where
the Serbs now hid them and across the river, just as before, to
destroy what was left of Kupres. And an old SAS buddy calls for
Jagger, this is Ron Whiteson from Rhodesia. I’m in Bosnia
now, a place called Kupres, and the Brigadier here needs some
help. I thought of you right off. I’m in the International
Brigade of the Croatian-Bosnian Army. I’ll have to explain
all that later, it gets kind of murky.” But there would
be no later because by the time Jagger gets to Kupres, Ron is
dead. And it just keeps getting murkier: On maneuvers on hill
1572, the International Brigade and the Regular Army are blown
to bits, as if the Serbs knew they were coming. The “Colonels”
stand around and drink all day. The “International Brigade”
is composed of the drugstore general from Canada, Sergeant Tony,
who, if he’s really Airborne, Jagger will eat his wings,
Nathan, who manages to go out and get himself pinned down by a
sniper, E.T., who just wants a dog, and Archie, formerly of the
Foreign Legion. And then there’s the girl. Maybe murky isn’t
the word for this.
must sort through the confusion and keep his wits about him if
he hopes to cobble together any kind of successful defense. The
ice keeps getting thicker every day.
the plot of Bosnia: River of Death is fiction it captures the
confusion of the times felt by the author during her stint with
the Bosnia-Croatian Army beginning in 1994. Sibyl MacKenzie, writing
under the pen name M. Wilson McReady, knows her subject well.
Married to the late Bob MacKenzie, who some will recognize from
“Soldier of Fortune” magazine, she traveled the globe
in search of adventure and it is this fresh authentic voice that
pervades her stories that convinces you that “McReady”
had been there and done that.
