FIREFORCE
One Man?s War in the Rhodesian Light Infantry

by Chris Cocks

Fireforce is the compelling, brutal account of Chris Cocks? service in 3 Commando, the Rhodesian Light Infantry, during Zimbabwe?s bitter civil war of the 1970s--a conflict that came to be known simply as "the bush war." The book?s title refers to a tactic of total airborne envelopment developed & perfected by the RLI, together with the Selous Scouts & the Rhodesian Air Force, that became the principal strike weapon of the beleaguered Rhodesian forces in their struggle against the overwhelming tide of the Communist-trained & -equipped ZANLA & ZIPRA guerrillas. This book is not for the squeamish. It blends the intrinsic pathos & humor peculiar to war with face-to-face combat in the bush & death at point-blank range. Now, here is your chance to read what several critics have called the best book on the Rhodesian War ever written.

Photos; 6x9 inches; 320 pgs.

Chris Cocks served with the Rhodesian Light Infantry from 1976-1979 in continuous combat situations. He drifted for the next 20 years before becoming a full-time writer & publisher in Johannesburg.
