This collection of five stories gives a remarkable insight into the guerrilla war fought to liberate Zimbabwe. Black Fire is based on the author's wide contacts with the guerrillas. The reader comes to understand the freedom fighters in a personal way -- how they saw Rhodesia, why they were prepared to risk their lives, and their problems and aspirations. Raeburn shows clearly how the bitter war developed from its unsophisticated beginnings to the adoption of advanced methods of fighting.
