A ruthless killer. A bloody and bitter conflict Deep in the arid heart of Zimbabwe-Rhodesia's terrorist-infested bushveld, Chitangwe Base Camp lay dust-choked and desolate in the blinding white glare of the African midday sun. An exhausted silence hung over everything. Chalmers suddenly felt very alone and ill-prepared for what he feared might lie ahead. Little could he imagine then just what horrors were about to unfold in the weeks that followed as the chilling cat-and-mouse conflict escalated with the coming of the rains. What happens when Chalmers and his mutinous band of unseasoned ‘soldiers’ finally come face-to-face with their ruthless enemy? Can they take on the impossible and still hope to survive? Their gut-wrenching struggle to the death forms the nail-biting and dramatic climax to this extraordinarily brutal yet ultimately heart-warming real-life drama. The Rhodesian Bush War and the triumph of evil
Set in the late 1970’s during the long drawn-out years of the Bush War, A Place Called Charlie Tango paints an unforgettable picture of the unrelenting horror and constant danger that all those who lived here faced each and every day while defending what the rest of the world had abandoned. Yet through all the bloodshed, fear and intrigue, the elemental and starkly beautiful backdrop of the vast African landscape itself shines vividly throughout this compelling autobiographical novel by Charles Beaumont.
