Stained Earth

by Derek Huggins

War, as Derek Huggins tells us, spares nobody and too often it is those caught in the cross- fire who suffer most. The war of liberation in Rhodesia was protracted and bloody, many people died, and many others are still living with its memories today. Stained Earth is a powerful and moving collection of short stories narrated by a policeman, Greg Stanyon. The clarity of his observations is fused with the pity and pain of this conflict. Both give rise to constant doubt about the war’s necessity and reflect the toll it takes. Recovery requires the telling of truth from different perspectives. This anthology invites us to reflect again on this period, from a point of view rarely heard before.
