Red Ground: The Forgotten Conflict: Massacres in Sierra Leone

Red Ground is an action packed military thriller based on the Sierra Leone Rebellions, a bloody and horrifying part of West African history.


"I would rate Red Ground up there with any other book on the African, conflict experience. Blood Diamonds Indeed!
Red Ground is a masterpiece of its genre, but not for the faint of heart."

"Perhaps the biggest compliment I can pay author Ken Fry is that RED GROUND reminded me of Conrad's masterpiece. It portrays the dark, ugly side of Africa, but also the dark, ugly side of humanity, and it does so in fine style."

"One minute, it is full of action, and you can practically feel the bullets whizzing past your ears. And then the mood becomes poignant..."



Vast deposits of diamonds and oil are found in land overlapping both Sierra Leone and Liberia. A scramble ensues to secure the mining and drilling rights of both commodities. Leading the race is the Mining Earth & Ocean Corp.

To amass and control this wealth, the creation of an illegal state called Salonga is proposed. The nominated ruler, backed and supported by the MEO, is a former RUF commander - General Icechi Walker, known as 'Body Chop' - a suspected mass murderer involved in countless atrocities.

To secure power, Body Chop, with the help of the MEO, engages the protection of a private mercenary army.

Disgraced, virtually bankrupt, ex-Sgt. Alex Dalloway is hired to join the mercenary brigade tasked to protect the newly elected President of Salonga. He has a personal quest to locate the Army officer who tortured him and killed his men years ago in the jungles of Sierra Leone. He begins to suspect the former RUF commander's involvement.

With the promise of diamonds upon the completion of their contract, Dalloway and the rest of the mercenaries must decide if they will close their eyes to the atrocities, or fight to stop Body Chop's rule of terror.

Get your copy and join this fast paced adventure into the dark side of AFRICA, where sometimes human life is the most invaluable commodity.
