Product Description

About the Author

CHAS LOTTER, the soldier poet of the Rhodesian war, had an unusual apprenticeship in the craft of poetry. Life began for him in Germiston, South Africa in 1949. His family moved to Rhodesia in 1953 and it was there that he grew up on farms in the Bindura and Gatooma (Kadoma) areas. He moved to Salisbury (Harare) in 1974 where he met his wife, Avril. As a field medic, Sergeant Lotter served for nine years with frontline units of the Rhodesian Army. It was these years of action, emotion and savage experience that fuelled the poet's fire in him. He started writing poetry "on the backs of cigarette boxes" in an attempt to deal with the realities of the war. From such humble beginnings emerged a series of vivid pictures of an African nation at war. Lotter's work was first published in Peter Badcock's volume, Shadows of War. Subsequently, he collaborated with Badcock on another successful work, Faces of War. In 1984, he published his highly acclaimed Rhodesian Soldier that blends photographs and verse to form a wide-ranging monograph of the Rhodesian war. His work has earned him membership of the English Academy of Southern Africa and his poetry has been published around the world. He lives in Pretoria, South Africa.

HASH(0xa7e3796c) out of 5 stars Interesting collection May 1 2011
By James D. Crabtree - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Mostly this is a book of poetry with artwork and photographs from the Rhodesian War. I enjoyed it but if you do not already have a firm grounding in the whole story of Rhodesia neither the poetry nor the imagery is going to mean much to you. Also, as a large-format book it doesn't work very well. I would prefer a smaller book myself... it would have done the contents just as much justice.

Just know what you're getting. If you aren't inclined to spend over $20 for poetry then you may want to think on this one.
