Abstract:Exploiting previously unexplored oral and archival sources, this biography centres on the life of General Solomon Tapfumaneyi Mujuru. Solomon is one of the most illustrious figures in modern Zimbabwean military and political history and in the transnational politics of Southern Africa's 1970s liberation struggles. He is, arguably, the greatest of all guerrilla field commanders from Zimbabwe's independence war against Rhodesian white-settler colonial rule. In the late 1970s, under the nom de guerre Rex Nhongo, Solomon reached the acme of his public acclaim, among black Africans, as a principal liberation fighter.
