The moment the SAM 7 missile left its launch tube, the political solution to end the Rhodesian bush war faltered.
After thirteen long years, the brutal bush war had escalated as the protagonists crystallised their opposing beliefs drawing the country and its people towards the precipice of despair.
Compassion, decency and sentimentality had no place there. The innocent civilians caught in the middle were the true victims.
A premeditated act of terrorism, taking only a few minutes to execute, brought down a civilian passenger plane. It triggered a series of dramatic and fateful events for retribution to be exacted on the guerrilla forces.
But to what end?

I found this novel to be engaging and I gleaned information about the sad situation in that country through the development of the characters in the story that helped me understand why that conflict was so unfortunate - especially given the terrible way Zimbabwe, which had so much promise, has ended up under such bad government. The style of writing was easy to read - I often felt I was in the conflict situations. It is brutal and as the synoposis says - to what end? I felt for those poor people caught in the middle of the fight.. It made me ponder the waste of human life and resources we spend in war. Georgeshow more
