As a POW in a notorious Indochina prison camp, French Lt. Col. Pierre Raspéguy studies the political and military strategies of his captors, the Viet Minh.

"Fiction and galloping documentary are harnessed to pull this Congo novel from the time of Lumumba's assassination in Katanga to somewhere near the present. ...[I]t is told through the eyes of three mercenaries who have been imported from France (with de Gaulle's permission). Their job is to organize the semblance of an army to impress the native population, other African states and the U.N. (The novel's last irony is that the mercenaries are but niggardly cogs in a much larger power struggle). As they are informed, ""Gentlemen, Katanga does not exist and this is unimportant. But we want people to believe it exists and this is important."" Gumming up the works are the U.N. occupation troops; the U.N. is not only aggrieved by Lumumba's murder, but it also disapproves of mercenaries, and Belgium has sent mercenaries to protect its interests. As crises escalate, the mercenaries abandon the administration and it eventually collapses." (Kirkus Review, April 15, 1966)
