Perhaps that is the most startling element in the book for me: Maybe this is the answer to my 1 question above in that he and his fellow soldiers were fighting for a homeland - their homeland. In the later stages of the book and the war Croukamp comments on how the members of the RLI seemed more ruthless than when he started in the mid sixties. Obviously the average soldier felt threatened and desperate as things dragged on and on.

Regarding the end of Rhodesia and his tenure in the army, he seems to have expected a military coup to occur. His description of the RLI members urinating on black civilians who were celebrating the new government paints a startling picture.

Of course we know how things are in Zimbabwe today As other reviewers have said the writing could be better. For me it was how the narrative flowed more than anything. There were times where I could not put the book down and others where I kind of forced my way through.

However with all of the action it never seemed to drag badly. It was interesting how the author really tried to get other perspectives and include them in the book: The commander of the Selous Scouts is given a chance to respond to Croukamp's claims many times throughout the book. While this is a credit to the author in terms of honesty, it kind of got old and I found myself skipping them.

Croukamp being an amateur photographer showed a captured diary from one of the terrorist camps. He includes a translation in writing which I found fascinating. Overall this is a good book and has sparked my interest in the subject. I've read a lot of books about Rhodesia's desperate struggle to keep their freedom.

This is without a doubt one of the best. It's a shame that Croukamp and Reid-Daly had a falling out but I commend Croukamp for giving Reid-Daly the opportunity to respond to some of the parts where Croukamp dealt a bit harshly with him. The parts where Croukamp discusses "Operation Quartz"--the coup that wasn't, are tantalizing!!!!

The Bush War In Rhodesia by Croukamp, Dennis

He provides a little more info on the subject than other books I've read but not a lot. It's a subject that would make a great book in it's own right. I'm not as young as I used to be and I suspect I'll never find out who cancelled the operation or why but I surely would like to know. Was it the South Africans? Were the South Africans pressured into pulling their support?

  • It's one of the great mysteries of the war and I wish I could find out what really happened! I hope you will write more. One person found this helpful. The author is a vibrant narrator of his personal experiences in the effort to stop communist backed insurgents from overrunning a country that was dear to him. The author was dynamic in his telling of events and was able to use photographs that he took personally to punctuate his tales of cross border raiding and internal exploits.

    I found it interesting that his mention of train derailment in an area of Mozambique can be supported with the modern advent of Earth Mapping software which allows anyone to look anywhere. Croukamp has so well described the location and surrounds of one the raids that one can look and see that the derailed train cars are in fact still present along the rail lines today. Well written and informative, I would refer this book to anyone that wanted some insight to the fighting forces that took up the cause of trying to save Rhodesia.

    One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. This is one of the best first-person accounts of the Rhodesian Bush War. He survived countess contacts, and amazing, a six day escape and evasion behind enemy lines in Mozambique after he was separated from his team. Well written and Mr. Croukamp's sense of humor comes through. A very impressive book about a very impressive man.
