Votre note
Fifty years ago, an optimistic and proud Britain emerged from the Second World War still with an Empire and a leading role in world affairs. But within a few years everything would change. In Africa, the rise of nationalism brought British power to its knees. In the struggle to retain influence and authority, the British government that had a decade earlier stood firm against tyranny now became the tyrant. In Kenya, the bitter and violent Mau Mau rebellion against British white rule saw the death of thirty-two white settlers. But more than 12, 000 Mau Mau rebels were killed. At the peak of the struggle Britain held more than 70, 000 Africans in detention camps without trial. Histories of the Hanged is the shocking true story of Britain's first war on terror.
