Author, Speaker, Travel Writer and Editor

As a successful author on subjects of African History, Warfare and Politics, I have to date ten commercially published books in print, each enjoyed exceptional reviews. My writing style is extremely versatile, supported by exhaustive research and attention to detailed, coupled with an intuitive sense of situation and character that has consistently resulted in well received and commercially successful publications. I am, of course, widely traveled, and have written for my own and a number of other travel journals over the years. As a professional in the travel industry for most of my life, I am still very active as a mountain guide in Africa, and a speaker and storyteller at various venues, including regular expedition cruises. In general I am well read, widely educated and with proven and versatile research skills. I am available for work in biography, memoir history, politics, travel and conservation.

The definitive history of the Rhodesia Regiment was authored by Peter Baxter as a combined project with the Rhodesia Services Association, including significant contributions from:

    Hugh Bomford
    Craig Fourie
    Tony Fraser
    Adrian Haggett
    Gerry van Tonder

The book covers the formation and evolution of the Rhodesia Regiment from the earliest days of the settlement of the British colony of Rhodesia, through it’s involvement in the Anglo/Boer War, WWI, WWII and the iconic Rhodesian Bush War that was fought throughout the 1970s, culminating in independence for Rhodesia, the formation of Zimbabwe and the dissolving of all the formations of the Rhodesian Security Forces.
THE RHODESIA REGIMENT: A COMPLETE HISTORY 1899-1981
South African Mirages and Cuban MiG-21s dogfighting over Cuito Cuanavale, the largest tank battle on African soil since El Alamein; Puma troopships shot out of the skies by Strela missiles and RPG-7 rockets; Alouette III gunships hovering menacingly above Koevoet tracker-combat teams as they close in for the kill; Hercules and Transall transports disgorging their loads of Parabats over Cassinga; suicidal helicopter hot-extractions of Recce operators deep in enemy territory; and a lone Alouette pilot who disobeyed orders and under intense ground fire evacuated a critically wounded soldier such is the story of the South African Air Force, the SAAF, over the 23-year period 1966-1989, the period of conflict that became known as the 'Border War'. Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, the SAAF was effectively South Africa's first line of defence against Soviet expansionism in southern Africa...
AFRICA@WAR SERIES SAAF BORDER WAR 1966 -1989
It has been over three decades since the Union Jack was lowered on the colony of Rhodesia, but the bitter and divisive civil war that preceded it has continued to endure as a textbook counter insurgency campaign fought between a mobile, motivated and highly trained Rhodesian security establishment and two constituted liberations movements motivated, resourced and inspired by the ideals of communist revolution in the third world.
A complicated historical process of occupation and colonisation set the tone as early as the late 1890s for what would at some point be an inevitable struggle for domination of this small, landlocked nation set in the southern tropics of Africa. The story of the Rhodesian War, or the Zimbabwean Liberation Struggle, is not only an epic of superb military achievement, and revolutionary zeal and fervour, but it is the tale of the incompatibility of the races in southern Africa, a clash of politics and ideals, and, perhaps more importantly...

Nigeria was a unique concept in the formation of modern Africa. In modern terms, it began life as a highly lucrative if climatically challenging holding of the Royal Niger Company, a British Chartered Company under the control of Victorian capitalist Sir George Taubman Goldie. It was handed over to indigenous rule in 1960 with the best of intentions and a profound hope on the part of the British Crown that it would become the poster child of successful political transition in Africa. 
It did not. One of the signature failures of imperial strategists at the turn of the 19th Century was to take little if any account of the traditional demographics of the territories and societies that were subdivided, and often joined together, into spheres of foreign influence, later evolving into colonies, and finally into nation states....
AFRICA@WAR SERIES BIAFRA: NIGERIAN CIVIL WAR
The end of the Cold War introduced an altered global dynamic. The old bond of East/West patronage in Africa was broken, weakening the first crop of independent revolutionary leadership on the continent who no longer had the support of one or other of the superpowers. With collapse of the Soviet Union, all this changed.\n\nThe question of global/strategic security devolved into regional peacekeeping and peace enforcement, characterized primarily by the Balkans War, but also many other minor regional squabbles across the developing world that erupted, as old regimes fell and nations sought to build unity out of the ashes.\n\nIn Africa, the situation was exacerbated by an inherent tribalism and factionalism that had tended to be artificially suppressed by powerful, often military, dictatorships, generally unconcerned with the needs and requirements of an oppressed population. No more striking example of this can be found than Somalia...

France in Centrafrique explores the pre- and post-colonial history of the Republic of Central Africa as well as giving the reader a taste of the country's involvement in WWII itself. The main focus of this volume is on Central Africa's independence and the rise to power of Jean Bedel Bokassa including the Focard network and Franafrique connections, France's military links with RCA (defense agreements), the republic's post independence military, its politics and Bokassa's coup. It takes a staggering look at Central Africa under Bokassa's leadership and the ensuing break down in its relationship with France. Operation Baracuda was the natural culmination of that soured relationship and in this book Baxter examines "France's last colonial expedition", the planning of the operation, its players, a step-by-step breakdown and its outcome. To bring the reader up to speed with the RCA de Cherisey discusses the yea
