Scatterlings of Africa free pdf A "compelling, high-octane novel of racial, tribal and ideological conflict that will almost certainly draw criticism from the politically correct brigade", Scatterlings of Africa is a fast paced thriller, set in Rhodesia's war against terror. Rhodesia became Zimbabwe in 1980. It's December 1972 and Lieutenant Ron Cartwright is obsessed with defending his country against insurgents in a vicious civil war. Comrade 'Gumbarishumba' Gadziwa is equally determined to win the fight for Zimbabwe to be restored to his people. While abduction, intimidation, torture and worse are going on in the war zone, the cities, towns and many farms remain safe, idyllic havens where Ron's wife Angela and their young children live in relative comfort. But the stress of their separate lives is taking its toll, and the arrival of Angie's cousin Mark, who she hasn't seen since she was a child, adds fuel to an already tense situation. The tentacles of war spread, plots cross, and life will never be the same again.

About Peter Davies

Born and raised in Africa, Peter Davies served as a part-time soldier in Rhodesia from 1963 to 1975. He saw action, and took part in captures and interrogation. This gave him an insight into terrorist minds, many of whom were successfully encouraged to 'turn' and fight alongside Rhodesia's soldiers against their former comrades. Davies wrote his novel, Scatterlings of Africa using his own recollections of how the war was fought, and how it affected Rhodesia and its people. You can find out more about Peter and his books at
