AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In 1972 Rob McQueen, like most white civilians, is conscripted into the army reserve in the fight against terrorism. The country of his birth has been plunged into a terrible bloody war from which there is seemingly no escape. His life is about to be changed forever and that of every other person living in the country, black or white. The book is based on actual events, records, observations and personal experiences while serving with the 6th Battalion Rhodesia Regiment.
