(p.1) Introduction
‘Rhodesians Never Die’

Peter Godwin

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces the historical context of the impact of war and political change on White Rhodesia. It offers to discuss in the book the story of how Rhodesians, nearly all of them ill-prepared for war and revolutionary change, reacted to the challenge to, and the eventual loss of, their domain. The story begins in 1970 when Rhodesia became a republic, and when the Rhodesians were confident, in control, and even complacent. This chapter explains various objectives of telling this story — one objective is to demonstrate and explain the emergence of sharp divisions within White Rhodesia.
