Of Land and Spirits

Alan Thrush
Battle action from the African bush - a modern classic of rebellion and the end of Empire. The Rhodesian Army fights a war it cannot win; the rural population is lost to revolutionaries contesting the ancestral land. Told from both sides of the conflict, this is war writing at its finest. There is bravery, cowardice, comradeship, loss.

About the Author

Alan Thrush was born in England, emigrating as a small boy with his parents and sister to Rhodesia in 1960. He was educated at Christian Brothers College in Bulawayo, and called up for national service in January 1974. Opting for selection and training as a career officer, he ended the bush war as a decorated captain in the Rhodesian African Rifles. In 1980 Alan left Zimbabwe for South Africa, to begin a career in business-to-business marketing. He ran his own consultancy in Johannesburg for 30 years, and still runs it today, though from Spain where he moved in 2016. He has two grown-up children. Of Land and Spirits is his first book.
