Twenty-five years later, in 2012, Paul returned to Angola, and embarked on a 1500-kilometre cycle trip, solo and unsupported, across the country.

His purpose was to see Angola in peacetime, to replace the war map in his mind with a more contemporary peace map, to exorcise the ghosts of war once and for all.Shifting skilfully between present and past, Back to Angola chronicles Paul s epic journey, from Cuito Cuanavale to the remnants of his unit s base in northern Namibia, and vividly recreates his experiences as a young soldier caught up in a war in a foreign land.

Along the way, the book provides thought-provoking reflections on childhood, masculinity, violence, trauma and friendship.Back to Angola is an honest, intelligent and deeply moving account of war and its effects on an individual mind, a generation of people, and the psyche and landscape of a country.
