Full description of the book Once Upon a White Man : A Memoir of War & Peace in Africa:

THE DYING DAYS OF ZIMBABWE-RHODESIA'S 1970's CIVIL WAR echo scarily the conditions of today's Europe. Society is under siege. Bombs explode in crowded shopping centres. Armed guerrillas mount daylight attacks on civilians. The moderate middle ground is eroded by escalating racism, horror and hatred. Innocents are caught in the battleground. Radicals fan the flames. And leaders on both sides vow to pursue violence with extreme violence in the name of right and justice. From a colonial childhood, to the front-line of Rhodesia's vicious civil war, to the final disintegration of Mugabe's post-colonial PDF Zimbabwe, this is the traumatic story of a conflicted young man who experiences the tragedy of his life and homeland being torn asunder. Amongst war, horror and hatred he tries desperately to live a normal life - dating girls, having fun, falling in love - but once peace finally comes to Zimbabwe, he finds life is still anything but normal under Robert Mugabe's iron rule. This is a real-life account which offers intriguing insights into the dilemmas facing a young patriot caught up in the march of Africa's post-colonial history. "This book offers a profound warning to the people ePub of the United States. If we do not take immediate steps to undo the political damage of the past decade the same future awaits us. This is a well written book, both engaging and personal. The author's love of his former country and its people, both black and white, shines through the sorrow of the events portrayed." (review by Critical Reader, Aug 2015)

About the author Graham Atkins

Graham Atkins was just 9 years old when, in 1965, the British colony of Southern Rhodesia unilaterally declared independence from Britain. UDI, as it was known, triggered an increasingly vicious guerrilla war between Ian Smith's recalcitrant white settler community and the brutal insurgent forces of Robert Mugabe and Joshua Nkomo. In 1979, just as the civil war reached its zenith, Graham found himself conscripted into the Rhodesian army as a 2nd Lieutenant in 1RR Batallion. He saw first-hand the tragedy of a nation at war with itself and the horrors it wrought on combatants and civilians alike. Talks brokered by Britain and the Front-Line African states finally brought peace to Zimbabwe and a socialist government under Robert Mugabe. Graham then worked as a town planner in the new black government, then as a safari camp manager, and finally as a business manager. While proud of his young nation's can-do attitude and the country's beauty and potential, his hopes for lasting peace and progress in Zimbabwe were shattered when Mugabe launched a pogrom against white farmers and the emerging black opposition. With the consequent collapse of the economy and law and order, over 4 million Zimbabweans fled the country, Graham and his family amongst them. He now lives in Perth, Australia
