Book Description

Congo Cobalt is a classic adventure story, packed with authentic detail, set in 1994, which will appeal to and be appreciated by all devotees of Wilbur Smith and Bernard Cornwell, about a group of former British Army comrades who decide to come out of retirement to wrest profit from the mineral riches of Central Africa, fighting off hostile cannibal tribes, terrorist gangsters and modern day pirates before winning through with a handsome financial gain, and other jewels beyond price. During their adventure, they have the moral satisfaction of helping an attractive French United Nations doctor and her team of nurses to bring much needed medical aid and education to primitive and suffering tribes people.


Although primarily a powerful, exciting, and dramatic military action adventure story, this novel has several tender and sensitively romantic elements running through it. It will therefore readily appeal to readers of both sexes, although is not suitable for young or nervous readers. Africa and its peoples can be cruel and savage, and the book reflects some aspects of this nature.

After attending and graduating from the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, Colin Boxall-Hunt was Commissioned into the Royal Regiment of Artillery in 1963, and completed a full career as a Regular Army Officer until 1989, serving in the British Army of the Rhine, Oman, where he saw active service against the Communist insurgents, and Rhodesia/Zimbabwe. He was a keen offshore yachtsman, and a highly experienced and qualified underwater diver, being appointed a Joint Service Subaqua Diving Supervisor. In 1974, he was awarded HM the Sultan of Oman’s Commendation for the action described in “Warty’s oilrig”.
