On 23 November 1977, an armada of helicopters and aeroplanes took
off from Rhodesian airbases and crossed the border into Mozambique.
Their objective: to attack the headquarters of the Zimbabwe African
National Liberation Army, where thousands of enemy forces were
concentrated. Codenamed Operation Dingo, the raid was planned to
coincide with a meeting of Robert Mugabe and his war council at the
targeted HQ. It would be the biggest conflict of the Rhodesian Bush
War. In this fascinating account, Ian Pringle describes the
political and military backdrop leading up to the operation, and he
tells the story of the battle through the eyes of key personalities
who planned, led and participated in it. Using his own experience
as a jet and helicopter pilot and skydiver, he recreates the battle
in detail, explaining the performance of men and machines in the
unfolding drama of events. Dingo Firestorm is a fresh, gripping
recreation of a major battle in southern African military history.
