Mozambique Hell Run: Trucking Tales of the War by Miguel Mitras
 More about the book!

An unforgettable memoir about driving through Africa’s most treacherous roads during the Mozambican civil war. They called it the ‘Hell Run’.

Miguel Mitras weaves a story of friendships, human vulnerability and navigating through emotions that come at you. In this candid account of trucking through Mozambique in 1991, you might even find a little laugh bubbling out as you read of the shenanigans of the author and his friends. He relives harrowing tales of running the gauntlet through the bandit-infested countryside with humor and vivid imagery.

It’s a compelling read that offers new insights into the conflict, including the chaotic Portuguese departure from Africa in 1974-75. A brutal yet complex civil war followed, where danger lurked everywhere. Especially on the transport corridors which became a battleground.
