A Crocodile Eats the Sun - The Outbreak of War
The African nationalists fracture and tribal violence erupts as Nkomo struggles to maintain his grip on power after agreeing to the new Constitution of Rhodesia. Sir Whitehead has had enough and Smith comes to the fore, whilst Mugabe is born again and Sithole has a plan. The Crocodile Gang kills and the opening engagement of the bush war galvanizes the Rhodesian security forces in the Battle of Sinoia. "You've got to hammer the men in training; the training must be as hard as humanly possible. They must be drilled hard and they must be driven in, and they must be really set in their ways, because it is hard to make a man understand that this training wasn't designed to help him win a Victoria Cross, it was designed to save his bloody life! He must attack without question, without hesitation, go in!" - Reg Seekings (Co-Founder of PATU)
