Fireforce - One Man's War in The Rhodesian Light Infantry

by Chris Cocks


"a tour de force" - Paul L. Moorcraft

"It (Fireforce) is one of the few books to emerge from that era which is brutally honest, and intensely moving." Joy Cameron-Dow - SABC personality

"Fireforce will be to the Rhodesian War what Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front was to World war 1. A high claim indeed, but perhaps valid, for this moving book is a classic indeed." Jim Mitchell - The Star

About Fireforce

Fireforce is the compelling, brutal but true account of Chris Cock's service in 3 Commando, The Rhodesian Light Infantry, during the bush war... It is a book which does nothing to glamorise or glorify the war. For, as Chris Cocks found at such a young age, war is merely a catalogue of suffering, destruction and death.

Fireforce is now in its second edition. The new edition includes narrative previously excised from the first edition, a wealth of photogarphs, a comprehensive roll of honour for Cock's regiment and an assortment of technical appendices that provide the fine attention detail that has contributed to this book's success over the years.

Available from the publisher, Covos Books, Fireforce is priced at R180 plus postage and packing. Payment by cheque or Visa / Mastercard only.
