From 1973 to 1979, a few hundred thousand white people attempted to save the white-
controlled nation of Rhodesia from African totalitarianism and racist barbarism. All
world’s governments supported hundreds of thousands of Soviet-trained terrorists,
who attacked Rhodesia from all directions. Still, the Rhodesians might have won
the war (they were terrific fighters, see Parade Grounds of the Dead) if there were not
traitors sabotaging the national war effort from within, at the highest levels of
Rhodesian Military and Intelligence authority. This book describes some of the terrible
machinations of Rhodesia’s traitors.
Review Table of Contents
”Upon certain occasions during the Rhodesian War it appeared as if Rhodesian Combined Operations Headquarters
was pointedly attempting to hamstring Rhodesian desant operations. During a successful Rhodesian SAS operation in
Mozambique's Gaza Province in late 1979, for example, Com Ops suddenly changed the plans. "In view of political
considerations, the plans were changed too often at the last minute and as a result, the end plan was too rushed and not
as thorough as it should have been. They had not stuck to their original aim of disrupting the Gaza lines of
communications. It had been changed to that of destroying Mapai. The destruction of the bridges became secondary,
and they did not go back to finish the Barragem Bridge demolition. There was much heated argument and harsh words
behind closed doors at Com Ops among several personalities as to where the responsibility lay for getting planners to
change their aim. One man denied the aim had been changed. The matter was never resolved and the controversy still
Thus the Rhodesians were forced to send their light infantry, "against a large well defended conventional position...it
was soon evident that Mapai could only be taken with very heavy security force casualties...For the first time in the history
of the war, the Rhodesians had been stopped dead in their tracks." Traitors inside Com Ops had meant for Rhodesia's
desant capability to be destroyed in the open fields before Mapai.”

  1. Dear Mr Shaw,

    wwwquikmaneuvers.com offers Paradegrounds of the Dead, Traitors of Rhodesia and perhaps seven other books on the Rhodesian War. Breaker McCoy, sort of an international soldier against communism and black racism, is strongly determined to tell he truth bout brave Rhodesia, just as you are.
    I hope that you can communicate with him. He also provides books on Southafrica but he remains enraged about South Africa stabbing Rhodesia in the back. To him and the rest of us Deklerk and other South Africn traitors, working in concert with Soviet, American, British and Canadian communists were the real cause of Rhodesia' an South Africa's transformation into serfs of Marxist/Black Supremacist witch doctors. Now the same thing has happened to the USA under the felonious Islamic Marxist Racist tyrant Obama. Of course the traitorous Brits now goose step to the marching orders of their Islamic and black supremacist bosses, too.
    Yet, we can beat them if we remmber and replicate the achievements of Rhodesia's elite which obtained in battle a 1 to 20 or more kill ratio over the terrs.
