I've just finished reading the book and I must say it was a real eye-opener. More than anything I think the book shows that Aukai Collins was a man
who wanted to do things his own way and he didn't really consider the long-term consequences of his actions. He was unable to integrate himself with
any sort of group movement, be it the mujahideen, the Chechens, the Americans, or anyone. His incredible bravery, though, is to be admired and his
goals were definitely noble. People who feel they have to kill people are certainly wiser to do it in the context of war than in some urban gang.
I would be interested in contacting the author to ask him some questions about how his life has progressed since the book. The email address at the
back of his book: firstname.lastname@example.org is no longer valid. Does anyone know a new address for him?
