Administrative / Biographical history

The Rhodesia Forces Oral History Project, 2008-2009, was conducted by Dr Diana Jeater and Dr Sue Onslow at the University of the West of England at Bristol and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, to interview white former members of the military and police forces in Rhodesia, from all ranks.  The questioning sought to discover what it was the interviewees considered they had been fighting for, and how their personal recollections may have been influenced by subsequent events.
