Item Description
  • The vicious conflict (1964–79) that brought Robert Mugabe to power in Zimbabwe
  • Expert coverage of the war, its historical context, and its aftermath
  • Descriptions of guerrilla warfare, counterinsurgency operations, and actions by units like Grey’s Scouts

    Amid the colonial upheaval of the 1960s, Britain urged its colony in Southern Rhodesia (modern-day Zimbabwe) to grant its black residents a greater role in governing the territory. The white-minority government refused and soon declared its independence, a move bitterly opposed by the black majority. The result was the Rhodesian Bush War, which pitted the government against black nationalist groups, one of which was led by Robert Mugabe. Marked by unspeakable atrocities, the war ended in favor of the nationalists.
