Zipra and Zanla War Stories By Preller Geldenhuys

This anthology of short war stories from eye-witnesses gives an insight into war experiences from opposing sides in the Rhodesian-Zimbabwe conflict 1965 to 1980. The Harare Sunday Mail conducted a... More > series of interviews during March and April 2018. This publication records and prints the bulk of the interviews that were posted on the internet. It is conservatively estimated that the Chimurenga war claimed well over 50,000 lives, albeit mainly civilians. It is not uncommon for combatants to mix up times and places - albeit those specific events did indeed occur. It is a fact that Zipra and Zanla clashed more amongst themselves (versus against the Rhodesian Security Forces). Death notices testify to that fact. The author estimates that it will take another generation of historians to remove or correct biases still very evident in latter-day tales.< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
My working life prior to 1995 was extensive and varied ranging from a holiday job in Chicken Inn, to a clerk in Seed Coop and various Science teaching positions. I engaged successfully with many... More > organisations, but felt that I was never appreciated and was taken for granted. Many of the managers were from the old Rhodesian school stock and the Rhodesian army, so managed in a very regimental style. I have always retained the professional qualities I developed in my early working career and have carried these forward in my current teaching and lecturing roles. I also imagined what it would be like to write a book or two one day. I am grateful for the ups and downs in my early work career as it developed my character and resilience, and to always stand up to what is right, honest and proper, no matter the cost, job- or relationship-wise.< Less
