During the West’s great transition into the post-Colonial age, the country of Rhodesia refused to
succumb quietly, and throughout the 1970s fought back almost alone against Communist-supported
elements that it did not believe would deliver proper governance. During this long war many heroes
emerged, but none more skilful and courageous than Captain Darrell Watt of the Rhodesian SAS,
who placed himself at the tip of the spear in the deadly battle to resist the forces of Robert Mugabe
and Joshua Nkomo.
The Rhodesian Story through the the life and times of PK van der Byl; one of the major players in a political drama that ended in the accession to power of Robert Mugabe under the auspices of the British government led by then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
By his very nature PK was controversial and confrontational.
This account is likely to give offense to some because it portrays him as bluntly as he was in real life.
Much can be contested about PK van der Byl but few will dispute he was an extremely colorful character with a devilish sense of humor.
