Author, adventurer, and former mercenary leader Thomas Michael "Mad Mike" Hoare is still very much alive and turns 95 today. Tough old boot!

Didn't realize he was still with us.

He's been keeping a low profile. He recently narrated most of his books on Audible.com (shameless plug: I absolutely loved listening to "Three Years with Sylvia" link )
and published a new book (to absolutely zero fanfare; I only found out about it by accident) called "Last Days of the Cathars." link

Well, well, I also didn't think he was still with us.
Happy Birthday to a "colorful" character of the 20th Century.

I followed his exploits in the bad old Congo days with great interest.

Perhaps he's having a quiet drink with Roland the Thompson gunner.

I doubt it; they used FALs!
