The first part of Man of Bees, written by Alex Morris-Eyton under a nom de plume, is about the bush war. Not since Wild Geese has a writer from Zimbabwe produced such a balanced account of this conflict – what it was like to be a guerrilla, living in the bush like a wild animal, and how young Rhodesian men felt being called up to fight a war in which the numbers were stacked against them.
