About: Sunday, Bloody Sunday. A Soldier’s War in Northern Ireland, Rhodesia, Mozambique and Iraq

Sunday, Bloody Sunday is late Jake Harper-Ronald's biography of a soldier’s war in Northern Ireland, Rhodesia, Mozambique and Iraq, as told to Greg Budd. Rhodesian Jake Harper-Ronald started his military career in 1966 in the Royal Rhodesia Regiment. He later joined the British Paras and in 1972 saw and photographed “Bloody Sunday” in Londonderry. Returning to Rhodesia in 1974 he passed selection for the Rhodesian SAS and later for the Selous Scouts. He took part in daring cross-border raids into external hostile countries. After the takeover by Dictator Mugabe, he was unjustly accused of spying, beaten and imprisoned in the infamous Goromonzi Political Detention Centre. Later he was released and reinstated in his Central Intelligence Organisation’s counter-intelligence job. This prompted Jake to begin espionage operations for South Africa, the United States and Great Britain. He finally cut loose from the ZCIO in 1989 when he was recruited by Britain’s MI6 to run militia’s to protect commercial developments in Mozambique and to train a Special Forces unit. This was followed by two spells working for a Private Military Company in Iraq until he died of cancer in 2007, aged 59.
