Bush War Rhodesia 1966-1980. Book by Peter Baxter. Africa @ War Series Volume 17. It has been over three decades since the Union Jack was lowered on the colony of Rhodesia, but the bitter and divisive civil war that preceded it has continued to endure as a textbook counterinsurgency campaign fought between a mobile, motivated and highly trained Rhodesian security establishment and two liberation movements motivated, resourced, and inspired by the ideals of communist revolution in the third world. The story of the Rhodesian War, or the Zimbabwean Liberation Struggle, is not only an epic of superb military achievement and revolutionary zeal and fervor, but a tale of the incompatibility of the races in southern Africa, a clash of politics and ideals and, perhaps more importantly, the ongoing ramifications of the past upon the present. A war with such emotional underpinnings as the Rhodesian conflict cannot but leave social and political scars on the modern psyche of Zimbabwe. The Rhodesian War is explained in digestible detail and in a manner that will allow enthusiasts of the elements of that struggle - the iconic exploits of the Rhodesian Light Infantry, the SAS, the Selous Scouts, the Rhodesian African Rifles, the Rhodesia Regiment, among other well-known fighting units - to embrace the wider picture in order to place the various episodes in context. 64 pages.
