A previous reviewer wished that there had been information I d suggest reading other books covering the same events, which are complementary to this book, eg, Dangerous Frontiers by Bryan Ray, commander of the Northern Frontier Regiment of the Sultan s Armed Forces in the early 1970s While Ray fought in a later campaign than Allfree describes, there is overlap in personnel.
And Dr J E Petersen s Oman s Insurgencies The Sultanate s Struggle for Supremacy The Dhofar campaign was, in some ways, an extension of the battle for Jabal al Akhdar Dr Petersen spent 10 years in Oman researching È Warlords of Oman Ú This is a well written account of a series of actions in which British forces took part and which has been almost forgotten in military histories.
S Alfree writes from a very personal viewpoint as a soldier in the Sultan of Oman s army His description of actions and characters is very entertaining and brought back memories of my very small part in the campaign.
A little background history and descriptions of the part played by British regular forces might have improved the book.
Nevertheless I do recommend the book, particularly to people visiting themuch changed Oman of today For anyone interested in the history of the developing Oman this is fascinating reading.
