The soldier poet of southern Africa matches his haunting poetry with authentic photos, paintings and sketches to tell the story of the Rhodesian bush war. Echoes of an African War follows the story of the teenaged army recruit who exchanged his home and his family for the world of barrack life.

 

It sketches the years, until 1973, when a low-intensity war allowed a young man to explore the African bush.

 

The story then bursts into the late 1970s when the conflict escalated into a vicious civil war.

 

It covers the war’s end, in 1980, and the subsequent readjustment to civilian life before finishing, in 1999, when, as a mature man, he looks back and remembers events that are now history.

 

Most important of all, this work imparts to his children what it looks like to have been been a soldier in Rhodesia’s war. Chas Lotter has perfected the magic art of combining pathos and eeriness. His observations are canny and surgically precise as he gradually unfolds his story.
