Rhodesian Bush War Animation: Operation Eland, the Selous Scouts Wipe Out a Communist Terrorist Base with Almost No Casualties
Rhodesia was a prosperous, successful nation. It was a food exporter, the breakbasket of Africa, the Jewel of Africa, and an example of a real Wakanda. It was destroyed by Marxist terrorists supported by the Soviet Union, Cuba, Communist China, and North Korea. But the real enemies were the Closet Commies and Bolshevik Bureacrats in Western nations that also provided aid to the insurrectionists, and cut off aid to the independent Rhodesians.
Operation Eland was a special forces masterclass. Captain Rob Warraker and the Rhodesians wiped out the Nyadzonya base with combined armored vehicles, aircraft, helicopters, and ground troops. It was a potent example the "surround and engage with critical timing" Fireforce tactics the Rhodesians implemented.
"This video focuses on Operation Eland in context of the Rhodesian Bush war. It explores why Eland was deemed necessary, the vast preparations required to undertake the operation, and the immediate strategic consequences of its success."
Interesting posts from the comment section:
"Rhodesia will always be 'Rhodesia' to me. I was there in the 70's and am proud to have fought with them.
"The Rhodesian military was the greatest counter-insurgency in modern history. Also unlike what modern western media try to say, black and white Rhodesians proudly fought side by side fighting the evils of International Communism."
"My uncle was part of the planning team for this op, he never spoke much about his time in the Rhodesian forces but he always had a great sense of pride for having served a country that welcomed him with open arms after he left the British Army and found his way to Rhodesia."
"They were the hardest, bravest and most capable men I ever came across."
"What an outstanding bit of soldering!"
"God bless Ian Smith and the old Rhodesia."
"The Rhodesian Army was the most competent, well trained and motivated Army in Africa. The Men where Anglo Saxon Protestants in culture and very few egregious events happened at all. The Marxist terrorists, however, brutalized, murdered and hacked their way to victory. This fight was a righteous fight that was lost due to overwhelming odds. Zimbabwe today is a horrid basket case of despair and disrepair, whilst most Rhodesian and their descendants are successful people in Australia, SA, the UK and New Zealand. They where the ones who turned the country into something useful, and that is now gone."
"I bet the Selous Scouts didn't fire "indiscriminately". I bet they fired systematically and deliberately."
"The term 'Freedom fighters' was a term used by the Left sympathisers of Mugabe (in particular). Did they win freedom? Well compare the two countries (Rhodesia and Zimbabwe) and the answer is clear: both blacks and whites were far better under Ian Smith than ever they were under Mugabe. Mugabe suffocated any hint of freedom and prosperity."
"Good video. It’s pronounced Seh-Lou because it’s French name. Named after Fredrick Selous, who is ‘the most interesting man in the world’. "
"Terrorists, not 'freedom' fighters."
"While the Anglo-American Establishment, UN and every other nation on earth bleated like sheep that Rhodesia would not be 'recognized' without 'free and fair, one man one vote elections', they required no such thing from Mozambique who were taken over by Frelimo terrorists with NO election whatsoever and mass murder, yet were recognized worldwide."
"Majority black rule has been a 'roaring success' in Rhodesia just like it has been throughout the rest of Africa. The disaster of Zimbabwe was entirely predictable, there were no winners black or white. The international do-gooders who facilitated it should have been held to account."
"Over all, I think that you are missing the reality of the situation. The terrorists were being funded and trained by Russia, China, and north Korea, while given food, medical supplies and political and economic support by Europe and America. At the same time South Africa was becoming strained in within their own borders.
Regardless of what Rhodesia did they would have been alone and isolated, attacking the base did destroy a vast amount of weapons and equipment that was being prepared to be used in Rhodesia. While we cannot know what would have been, I suspect that those munitions would have been used to kill even more Rhodesian civilians, of all races, and no other meaningful effect on the war would have happened as the delay of isolation from not attacking the base would have been offset by the literal army on their doorstep."
