  1. Ah, the famous "Le Coq Dor" of Fireforce and Stickleader fame! I've seen this photo many times but did not know that it was one of that famous watering hole. Thanks for pointing that out. I now have a visual frame of reference for the stories laid out in said books. Is it the terrace area there on the side?


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.
