This is the first part of my interview with JB Campbell one of the very few Americans who came to fight in Rhodesia. He was there in 1973-1974 just as the war was starting off and when it was still centred in the north east.
You may have heard of the thousands of white South African farmers who’ve been murdered over the years. In the view of JB and myself there are no farm attacks anywhere in the world that match the ferocity which the Rhodesian farmers (husbands and wives) faced and survived. The blacks were armed by the Soviet Union and China with modern military weapons, including anti-tank landmines that were used to blow up civilians.
