This is the first scholarly study of soldiers and guerrillas demobilized after the civil war in Mozambique (1979-1992). The author's groundbreaking field work with former combatants on both sides of the civil war challenges many assumptions about veterans of post-independence wars in Africa. The book examines former soldiers' return to civilian life, and how their identity as veterans plays out in the political sphere.
