This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Learning from great leaders, Deneys Reitz
The greatest war story was written by a young man racked with malaria
banished to an island far from his homeland. He was banished because he
showed unwavering loyalty to his father, who refused to live under the
rule of the conquering British flag. That war story was the journal
Commando, which Field Marshall Smuts called an unvarnished tale and you
can read it here.
It is a gripping story that has no equal. Reitz served Smuts in
opposing the British and then later in life was loyal to him in
supporting the British, especially during the two World Wars. Smuts went
from being an opposing General to a Field Marshall, possibly the only one to have fought for and against the British Army.
