5.0 étoiles sur 5 A really wonderful book. A 'Must Read' for all Rhodesians. 3 juin 2013
Par C Cave - Publié sur
I was completely captivated by this book from the beginning of the first chapter, when he said that first arriving in Rhodesia was like finally realising that you had found your home. It so perfectly described my own experience. I still get a warm glow when I dip back into this book. It is written in a wonderfully genuine style, and brings back so many memories: good and sad. An absolute MUST for everyone who holds Rhodesia dear. I shall make a point of reccommendi It to all my friends. Definitely the full 5 STARs !!

This well-written and interesting book catalogues the descent of a once prosperous country into a state of economic collapse and barbarism, despite the efforts of a valiant few trying to stem the tide!
Fearful Odds outlines the ultimate success of Mugabe's terrorists in terrorising and murdering the people of Rhodesia (black and white) while the British government sacrifices them on the alter of expediency and appeasement.

Churchill must be spinning in his grave!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Odds Were Just Too Great 2 janvier 2015

This is a solid factual account from the personal experiences of an old style policeman and terrorist fighter.

He seemed to go everywhere and into danger at the drop of a hat even on reaching the ranks of Superintendent and Chief Superintendent.

Those 15 years of war were an experience in fortitude, valour and hope, but sadly it all ended rather quickly and very tragically. 35 years later there is indeed no uhuru for anyone, just a failed state waiting for a dictator and his anointed ones to pass. But that might take another couple of generations.

It is actually incredible how it took just 15 years by initially raw tribespeople (albeit fully supported by the Soviet Union and China) to blunt (note, not beat) the military might of the Rhodesian Joint Forces and yet 35 years later the population of going on 10 million people is subjugated and enslaved by greed, poverty and hopelessness.

One can but pray for the good people of Zimbabwe that true uhuru is much closer than it otherwise currently appears.

To Chief Superintendent Tippetts and his ilk, I salute you for those 15 years, but the odds were just too great.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Beginnings of PATU 19 avril 2014

Interesting learning how to make gunpowder from Dassie urine.
Decisions made at JOC level. Author spent majority of time
QueQue, Nuanseti, Gokwe. Rhodesia Govt. installed 1000's
water boreholes throughout the land and the CT's destroyed
this vital resource in the villages placing hardship on everyone.
IDS was right all along, IT WAS about communism and not
black nationalism. Must have been galling for the officer to
have to report to his men with a gross lie from HQ. Don't go
to the end will not make sense. With the reference
material provided, this is a keeper. Plenty on BSAP, could
have done with more on PATU.

A really interesting and well written book from start to finish. I served in the BSAP for five years and had the pleasure of working with Dave In Que Que Rural and Zhombe stations and can vouch for his tenacity and dedication during his service. - Well done Dave
