Chimurenga! The War in Rhodesia 1965 - 1980Moorcraft & McLaughlinSoft cover 1982.The reason this book is so cheap is due to the binding being loose. All pages are present but the binding has come unstuck."Many books have been written about Rhodesia, but this is the first comprehensive account of the war. Paul Moorcraft and Peter McLaughlin, both acknowledged experts in the field of military history, present a fair and factual record of the struggle from both sides. This well-illustrated book depicts the military history of Rhodesia from the first Chimurenga (resistance to white rule), and continues the saga into the 1980s. The main thrust of the book, however, is concerned with the dramatic final years of the war. No punches are pulled as the inside story of the tragic mistakes and double-dealing is revealed.Besides the insights into the Rhodesian conflict, the book provides a general analysis of guerrilla warfare and draws parallels with the experiences in Northern Ireland, South America, Israel and Vietnam. But the most obvious parallel is the impact of Rhodesia's defeat on the Republic of South Africa."
