  1. Hats off to your father Mr. Shaw. I, of course, did not know him, but any man who can accomplish what you have shown us here is of the first order in my book.


I welcome comments from everyone on my book Choppertech.
I am interested especially on hearing from former ZANLA and ZIPRA combatants who also have thier story to tell.
