5 star review on Amazon for TFI

I found this book through a tweet by Jack Murphy (@JackMurphyRGR) author of military fiction. As someone who reads military history, as well as military fiction and non-fiction, I loved it. I enjoyed the pace of the book and the development of the characters. I especially enjoyed reading the authors description of Africa and its own military history. I found it easy to picture the terrain, the people and especially the action with the fluid descriptions and believable dialogue. Knowing this is the first in a series helps because the backgrounds of some of the characters are pretty short but you won’t care. The men are pros and there ito do a job and the author delivers the action. I knew it was fiction but it reads like and account of commandos describing a mission that was anything but routine

Great Rhodesian fiction

Jack Murphy is a man who has been there and done it as a member of the US Special Forces Community. He has decided to take his talents to the keyboard and is rising on the Amazon Charts with his Epic Novel Reflexive Fire.

For enthusiasts of Rhodesia and her Armed forces he has written a story well worth the read. Sean Deckard Sr. has come home from the Vietnam war and continues to soldier on as a true Cold Warrior on the Continent of Africa.
