Praxis: The Defense of Farms in Rhodesia.
The incomparable Rawles gives us this article with many useful links: Could America's Farmers and Ranchers Face a Rhodesian Future? Read and learn. However, remember that individual homesteads can only delay organized looter bands. (See previous Sipsey Street posts on 18th century frontier "stations" here and here.) To break the back of organized looters you must have an organized and capable ready reserve to track them down and destroy them and/or track them to their own home fortifications and destroy them at the source. That is the lesson of late 18th Century Tennessee settlers.
