Product description


This publication is the first memoir written by men who fought as guerrillas with any of the liberation forces of countries in southern Africa. The authors joined the liberation struggle as young men in the early 1960s when they left South Africa to join the ranks of MK in Tanzania. After receiving military training in the Soviet Union they became members of the Luthuli Detachment which infiltrated the Wankie area of Rhodesia in 1967 to fight alongside Joshua Nkomo's ZIPRA. After numerous battles and skirmishes both were captured within Rhodesia. Thula was tried for terrorism in the High Court, Salisbury, found guilty and sentenced to death. This was later commuted to life imprisonment. He was only released from prison 13 years later after Robert Mugabe came to power. He afterwards became a successful businessman and is now a senior official in South Africa's Ministry of Defence. Daluxolo was handed over to South Africa where he was convicted of terrorism and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment on Robben Island. After release in 1979, disproving of the ANC's UDF affiliate's horrific necklacing tactics, he joined the IFP.

With 200 others he was sent to the Caprivi Strip for training
