Capricorn: David Stirling's African Campaign
The turbulent history of post-colonial Africa has been a disappointment to idealists and to politicians who hoped for peace in countries free of European control. Capricorn is the story of a small band of idealists in the decade before independence that believed a future without racial discrimination would allow the countries of east and central Africa to prosper. Capricorn is a poignant story of success and failure, of human idealism and hope in Africa and in Britain, of high endeavor and many larger-than-life characters, especially David Stirling himself.
