RHODESIA'S LONELY WAR ON TERROR
In this vividly compelling autobiographical novel, author Charles Beaumont paints an unforgettable
picture of life and death on an isolated outpost, deep in the arid heart of the African bushveld.
Set in the late 1970’s during the closing stages of the Zimbabwe-Rhodesian Bush War, Beaumont’s
extraordinarily brutal yet, ultimately, heart-warming real-life account lays bare the unrelenting horror
and constant danger that all those who lived here faced each and every day while defending what the
rest of the world had abandoned.
