Chess game
29 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Russell was in chess game with a Latin American dictator. He had help from a refugee European doctor. He won the game because the doctor was also "helping" the dictator. For a 10 yr old, the was a way cool plot twist.

I agree with the previous poster that the series was an example of the "White man's burden". Can't believe that it only ran a year. It was a period piece in a lull for mercenaries. Then again, with the Congo in 1960, the concept of mercenaries was revived and it was not an American dominated area.

Probably would have done better if they were CIA.
