Uganda's Revolution 1979-1986. How I Saw It

by Pecos Kutesa

This is the story of the guerrilla National Resistance Army in Uganda and its struggle to overthrow the Idi Amin government in the 1980s, a war which has been characterised by the historian Mahmood Mamdani as a historic defeat in Africa for a professional army at the hands of civilians. The story is told from the perspectives of the combatants – the intellectuals and the uneducated masses who rallied to change the social and political landscape of their country.
