DECLASSIFIED - A RHODESIAN FIREFORCE STORY
The Fireforce was a mixed group of strategic intervention and rapid of the Rhodesian armed forces composed by the selous scouts, the Rhodesian SAS, the light infantry and the air force that was detached here and there to accomplish missions against the communist guerrilla forces in the bush.
This is a serie of 2 small campaigns of with the Rhodesian air force




The first campaign will be early in the '60, will consist mainly of transport duty, drop the Rhodesian SAS in the bush and pick up them too.

The second in the' 70 will be with the strike force units, and the Green Leader raid over the Zambezi against the terrorist base at Westland farm where the Guerrilla forces and their Cuban advisors where garrisoned, in retaliation for having shoot down a Rhodesian air line passenger liner and having cut in pieces the survivors.

These campaigns will be the beginning of a serie of missions and campaigns I will release by that summer into autumn about an unknown front of the cold war, the next ones will be in Angola with the South African defense forces and in Mozambique with the Portuguese air forces using the ever nice Fiat g91 against the soviet backed  guerrillas.

This will be an interesting collection (regardless of one's views on those particular regimes). These "minor" wars were nicely covered in the part work War in Peace, released by Orbis publishers in the UK, in the early-mid 1980s. My copy currently resides in a box in my attic!

Orbis released some fantastic part works during that decade, including the magnificent The Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Aircraft, which I regretfully never could complete.
