Blood Diamond

Anyone who saw Blood Diamond will have spotted that a main character, Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio) came from Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe).

My book "Scatterlings of Africa" is set during the Rhodesian Bush War of the 1970s and although it's a novel it should provide an authentic background – I fought in that war. Matt gave it a good review on the "Other Authors" page on this website.

I cut my teeth on Wilbur Smith novels and am still a great fan. Pete

I'm scheduled to watch it this weekend! I'll move this discussion to the Movies thread:)
