About this title

Synopsis:

WAR IN THE FOREST "I scrambled on my knees through the grass. Escape was the one thought in my mind. In front was the edge of the forest and sanctuary. Behind, ambush, the bodies of my comrades, capture. I reached the trees as bullets sucked across the clearing . . . " These pulsating words open what is undoubtedly the most exciting and readable book yet to come out of Kenya's forest war of liberation. Kiboi Muriithi was a prominent leader of the Mount Kenya Mau Mau forces and his story, brilliantly recorded memorably evokes the David and Goliath actions of that incredible struggle. Here it all is-the extraordinary hardship, the ingenious improvisation and the shrewd guerilla tactics of the small, poorly armed, hastily trained groups of intrepid men who vowed before God, their land and their people to bring the British colonial government and its much vaunted army of occupation to its knees.

About the Author:

Kiboi Muriithi the author of War in the Forest was born in Nyeri, Kenya in 1930. He attended Ngorano and Tumutumu mission Schools. He owed his early nationalistic teachings to his father who was a peasant during the oppressive colonial period. In 1952, when the Mau Mau war of independence erupted, he joined the freedom fighters in the forest where he rose to the rank of Lt General. War in the Forest is an autobiography of his personal experiences as a leader of the Mau Mau. He was later arrested and detained until 1958 when the war ended and Kenya was due for her well deserved independence in 1963. Kiboi Muriithi is married to his wife Wambui, and were blessed with eight children.
