Sergeant Lotter served for nine years with frontline units of the Rhodesian Army. It was these years of action, emotion and savage experience that fuelled the poet’s fire in him. He started writing poetry on the backs of cigarette boxes in an attempt to deal with the realities of the war. Lotter’s work was first published in Peter Badcock’s volume, Shadows of War. Subsequently, he collaborated with Badcock on another successful work, Faces of War.
Here, this soldier poet of southern Africa, matches his haunting poetry with authentic photos, paintings and sketches to tell the story of the Rhodesian bush war.
