Description

Out of Action is the reworked and updated edition of Survival Course, the sequel to the best-selling Fireforce – one man’s war in the Rhodesian Light Infantry.

Part 1, ‘War’, chronicles Chris Cocks’s final 16 months of combat in the Rhodesian bush war, as a stick leader in PATU, the Police Anti-Terrorist Unit.

Part 2, Peace, recounts the author’s painful adjustment to life as a civilian – a fifteen-year odyssey in the embryonic state of Zimbabwe. It is an intensely personal journey in which the author pulls no punches as he describes his clumsy attempts to come to terms with the new dispensation of black Africa, and himself.

Ultimately though, it is a story of hope, of a man’s triumph over his own demons.
