Modern African Wars : Rhodesia, 1965-80 No. 1 Paperback
Illustrated by Mike Chappell
Part of the Men-at-Arms series
The Rhodesian War of 1965-80 is the battle for control of present day Zimbabwe.
The former British colony of Southern Rhodesia rejected British moves towards majority rule and on 11 November 1965 the Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith announced his country's Unilateral Declaration of Independence from Great Britain.
That act sparked a series of violent encounters between the traditional colonial army and the African guerilla insurgents of the Patriotic Front.
This book examines the successes and failures of the counter-insurgency campaign of Smith's security forces and the eventual bloody birth of a modern African nation.
