A book that is difficult to read not because of the way it is composed but because of its content. Mr Mugabe would not have wanted this sort of information to get out. It is a frightful display of his atrocities committed upon his own people. The book is a detailed report on the atrocities of the regime on those who live in the southern region of Zimbabwe rather than a staight history of events. Be prepared to do a little digging and familiarise yourself with the terminology as it is quite hard work for those not familiar with Southern Africa and its social, religious and political history. It is brave people such as these authors who let the world know what has gone on in the name of "freedom" within Zimbabwe and the consequent misery that resulted. It helps us all understand the reasons for the present situation there.

Highly recommended account of the atrocities committed against unarmed civilians in Zimbabwe barely 3 years after independence.

NB: the 5 Brigade who committed these terrible answered DIRECTLY to Mugabe -- the only unit so to do. Tells you something...

This book should be mandatory reading for all those who continue to believe that Robert Mugabe was a great leader for the first couple of decades after independence, who only 'went bad' in the year 2000 when the land seizures began.

He's been a very, very nasty individual all along... it's just that virtually no-one outside Zimbabwe noticed -- or cared...

But don't just take my word for it -- ask the Matabele..
