Two Weeks in November

Two Weeks in November The astonishing untold story of the operation that toppled Mugabe Douglas Rogers

Two Weeks in Novemberis the thrilling, surreal, unbelievable and often very funny true story of four would-be enemies - a high ranking politician, an exiled human rights lawyer, a dangerous spy and a low-key white businessman turned political fixer - who team up to help unseat one of Africa's longest serving dictators, Robert Mugabe. What begins as an improbable adventure destined for failure, marked by a mixture of bravery, strategic cunning and bumbling naivete, soon turns into the most sophisticated political-military operation in African history. By virtue of their being together, the unlikely team of misfit rivals is suddenly in position to spin what might have been seen as an illegal coup into a mass popular uprising that the world - and millions of Zimbabweans - will enthusiastically support. Impeccably researched, deftly written, and told in the style of a contemporary political thriller, Two Weeks in November throws you into the very heart of `the game', a dangerous hidden world that makes you question what is real, what is choreographed, and whether anything can really change in a country where the same players are still dictating the rules.
