If you enjoy reading about African hunting and guns, African Rifles and Cartridges is at the top. His book Pondoro is also great.

He tells that when he was in the bush he went naked like the natives, and the way he learned about WWII was when his men brought something wrapped in a newspaper. Is that back in the wilds or not?

When it comes to hunters I think Jim Corbett was the greatest of all times. He hunted maneaters sometimes on the ground at night.
I remembers reading Maneaters of Kumaon in Field and Stream in the late 40s. It was extremely interesting and I had to have all his books. My Mom liked the stories also and when we got a new issue we read it that night.
He grew up in India, and as a child even slept out at night in Tiger country.
