The origins of the scramble for Africa are explored, the days of the BSAP, the colony of Souther Rhodesia and Federation, the increasing African political activity in the fifties, and the foundation of ZAPU and ZANU, the inception of the armed struggle in 1966, the course of the war, and the various attempts to reach a settlement before the final ceasefire.
