Among other things, the opinions of a former member of the Zimbabwe Republic Police force. My take on the world in general and one thing in particular - a commentary on the current situation in Zimbabwe. I am not a journalist, nor a political activist, but I am a man with a conscience. Hence, this page is my civic responsibility. The more people that hear about the devastating rule in Zimbabwe and the problems therein, the better!

Books by Robb WJ Ellis

Last week I finshed writing my second book, 'A Not So Distant War'. This is my second published work, the first being 'Without Honour' written in 2006. These books are available from the Lulu respective vendor pages at £8.99 each plus postage.

'Without Honour': Detailing my experiences in the Zimbabwe Republic Police in Matabeleland South in the early to mid 1980's during which time Robert Mugabe unleashed his Korean-trained Fifth Brigade on the Matabele people - twenty to thirty thousand people lost their lives in that time. Neither Mugabe nor his armed forces have been brought to book for the massacre.

'A Not So Distant War': The lifestyle in Rhodesia was one of sustenance, embodiment, education and innovation. It was a life that I don’t think can be duplicated anywhere else in Africa. Indeed, I am not sure it can be duplicated anywhere else in the world. The weather, the ecology, the people, the environment - a truly amazing place. And we have to remember that the country, even in the mid-1960’s was, in essence, a country in infancy, still finding its feet and establishing itself. Just as every small event or occurrence in my life contributes, in some large or minute way, to the person that I am today, we, as people, and our lives in Rhodesia, or Zimbabwe, contributed to the country that it became. These are my memories of growing up in ‘God’s Own Country’… Rhodesia.

Vendor pages are here: 'Without Honour' and 'A Not So Distant War'...

Order in time for Christmas.

My New Book: "A Not So Distant War"

Growing up in Rhodesia was not so much an adventure as a journey.

The lifestyle in Rhodesia was one of sustenance, embodiment, education and innovation. It was a life that I don’t think can be duplicated anywhere else in Africa.

Indeed, I am not sure it can be duplicated anywhere else in the world.

The weather, the ecology, the people, the environment - a truly amazing place. And we have to remember that the country, even in the mid-1960’s was, in essence, a country in infancy, still finding its feet and establishing itself.

None of this can ever be taken for granted. Just as every small event or occurrence in my life contributes, in some large or minute way, to the person that I am today, we, as people, and our lives in Rhodesia, or Zimbabwe, contributed to the country that it became.

Available of Lulu for just £8.99 plus postage. Visit vendor page by clicking here.
