Rhodesia and the vicious civil war continues and is intensified by the shooting down of a civilian airline and the horrific massacre of the survivors. Kensington's own Territorial Battalion has been called up and routinely deployed on the Zambia border. But there is nothing routine about this deployment. The war has been joined by Alice Chingola and her tribe of merciless religious warriors, and are now allied to ZANU the local terrorist group with Alice as supreme leader, tilting the balance in favour of the terrorists. For the army the gloves are off, the rule book thrown away, terror met with terror with just a hint of conventional soldiering.

Rhodesia, in 1975 and a bloody vicious civil war is at its height-a war between the white minority supported by the black majority and the ZAPU and ZANU terrorist groups, supported by Zambia and Mozambique. Kensington, a small town in the farming belt, has been the subject of several terrorist attacks, but with only a small police force for defence and the local T.A. unit having been called up for service on the Zambia border, the situation appears grim. Until Iffor Meredith turns up on a pilgrimage, that is. A deadly ambush on the "Dix" family and his escape from a land mine attack makes Iffor determined to offer resistance of some form or other to the terrorists. His application to join the Rhodesian Army has been accepted and he sets about forming a small militia. With all the fit men already on call up, who can he recruit from? Then he's invited to a darts match at the Moth Club and meets up with the remnants of the town's Fire Brigade, the men considered too old for call up. And so Blue Watch is engaged!
