Book Review: Fighting for Time: Rhodesia’s Military and Zimbabwe’s Independence
Author: Charles D. Melson
Reviewed by Charles G. Thomas, associate professor of comparative studies, Air University Global College

The struggle for Rhodesia, otherwise known as the Bush War, centered on the decolonization of Rhodesia and involved ugly racial dynamics. The reviewer sees this work as “as comprehensive and critical as a single volume may be about Rhodesia’s military during the Bush War.”

Keywords: Rhodesia, Zimbabwe, Bush War, Selous Scouts, Rhodesian Light Infantry
