267 pages; 20 chapters and 5 appendixes
Rhodesia’s Grey’s Scouts is an e-book about horse cavalry combat operations
in Africa
during the era of war against communist takeover. During that time, civilized
white nations were forcibly replaced by black savagery, disease, and mass murder
totalitarian regimes. Although
Rhodesia captured plenty of vehicles from its enemies,
the competent generals who led
Rhodesia’s war effort realized that horse cavalry
could be very effective against terrorist gangs
. Several white nations used
horse cavalry against African terrorists. Before Rhodesia went down, the
Portuguese defended their presence in Africa with
horse cavalry, as did South
African thereafter. However,
Rhodesia’s Grey’s Scouts is the first book almost
exclusively devoted to
Rhodesia’s Grey’s Scouts, a battalion of mounted riflemen
that proved itself as lethal as a tank battalion in modern war.
Rhodesia’s Grey’s
organization, tactics, operations, politics, horses, and dogs are all described
Rhodesia’s Grey’s Scouts. The achievement of the Rhodesian mounted
infantry battalion of horse cavalry
was professional and heretofore relatively
overlooked. QuikManeuvers.com is changing that.
Review Table of Contents
“In 1977, the Rhodesian SAS was fully committed to strangling Mozambique's Tete Province through ambushes, raids,
mining and demolitions activities. Early in 1977, they launched Operation Mardon as 83 Rhodesian vehicles loaded with
SAS and RLI troops, plunged deep into the enemy entrails. Soon the lethal onslaught of Rhodesia’s best troops had
wrested control of Tete Province from the tyrannical afro-communist enemy.
Also in January 1977, an SAS section of twelve men spent six weeks raiding from a base on Lake Cabora Bassa using
canoes. In the process they killed about seventy enemy soldiers. During the second phase of the operation, one SAS
callsign spent thirteen weeks operating out of the lake base.
During SAS control of Tete Province in 1977, the number of ZANLA operating in Rhodesian Combat Zone Hurricane
dropped from 800 to 210. Then the SAS was withdrawn and sent to the Gaza area to halt ZANLA infiltration where the
Selous Scouts had failed. The Rhodesian Security Force Unit sent into Tete after the SAS left, was weak and ineffective.
Soon the enemy Tanzanian Army had cleared the roads of land mines and helped regain control of Tete Province.
In March 1977, twenty-two SAS supported by a 60mm mortar, attacked the garrison of Chioco in Tete Province. Dividing
into three assault groups, one stop group and one support group, they swept through the objective area killing forty
enemy troops.”
