Insignia and History of the Rhodesian Armed Forces. 1890-1980. (4th Edition) by Col Dudley Wall

This book is a record of the insignia and history of the Rhodesian armed forces from inception to 1980.

Rhodesia had a fascinating history that characterised the pioneer spirit of early Africa. The continent of Africa was in a stage of being colonised by the various European countries. The pioneers of Rhodesia followed in the footsteps of the early Portuguese explorers and the inquisitive and bold such as David Livingstone and Cecil John Rhodes led the way. Legends were born out of the bravery and tenacity of the early settlers.

It must be noted that the politics and motivations of the various political parties are not discussed in this book at all. There are many writers who have looked at this from different viewpoints and there are many books published on the subject.

The purpose of this book is not to repeat the good or the bad of the motives of the leaders and politicians of the country. It is, rather, a reflection on the spirit and actions of the military kith and kin of a country.
