Description
CONTACT 1
John Lovett

In December, 1972, a lonely farmstead in Rhodesia's North Eastern Border area was attacked by a band of communist-trained infiltrators armed with machine-guns, grenades and automatic rifles. An eight-year-old white child was killed. This, the first of many incursions across the country's frontiers, triggered Operation Hurricane, now part of a wider counter-insurgency campaign which Rhodesian security forces are conducting - and conducting in fine style.

Contact is a pictorial profile of the war and of Rhodesia's armed services. John Lovett writes fluently and informatively of the country's military tradition, of the political origins of the present conflict, and of the history and nature of the operations against terrorism. Thereafter, he devotes several substantial and dramatically illustrated chapters to the security Forces themselves.

Special features of the book are the reproduction, in full, of the many citations which have accompanied awards for gallantry since 1966, a description, in color, of Rhodesian honors and awards, and comprehensive rolls of medal recipients.

In his foreword to Contact, the President of Rhodesia says: "[All this] combines to represent a lasting testament to the courage and resolution of our citizens of all races. . . . I join Mr Lovett in paying tribute to our policemen, soldiers and airmen, to the members of our Internal Affairs and Guard Force, to our farmers in the operational areas and to the great many other civilians who contribute so splendidly to the national war effort."

A special note concerning the cover: The cover of this book is notorious for its poor quality. Most of our covers are extremely well worn. We put all covers into a protective sleeve, butin most cases it is too late to prevent the wear and damage. This is a particular failing with this book. If warranted we will replace the original cover with a replica copy.

Hardback, good condition.

Comes with our DVD - THE WAR WITHIN
