Soldiers in Zimbabwe's Liberation War

Edited by Ngwabi Bhebe, T.O. Ranger

These two companion volumes on Soldiers and Society give new perspectives on Zimbabwe's liberation struggle.
This work is an attempt to look at some of the realities of Zimbabwe's liberation war and at what happened afterwards, rather than at the comfortable myths. Both heroic and terrible deeds are recorded.
