Soldier Blue

Paul Williams



Soldier Blue is a superbly written account of growing up in Rhodesia, centering on the author’s experiences as a young conscript during the ‘bush war’. Against the backdrop of the rise and fall of Ian Smith’s Rhodesian rebel state (1965-1980), Soldier Blue tells the story of an English boy who grew up in Africa, a soldier who fought, and a dissenter who struggled to define himself against such a backdrop.
