Abstract:This article examines the role of state gamekeepers in the counter-insurgency campaigns in Kenya in the 1950s and in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) in the 1960s and 1970s. During both conflicts gamekeepers were important in directly hunting insurgents, developing new security force training institutions and programs, recruiting skilled African trackers, and pioneering new counter-insurgency tactics.
