Africa Lost: Rhodesia’s COIN Killing Machine

Africa LostBuy it on Amazon!

Today I wanted to turn my readers on to a new e-book released today from my buddy and fellow writer, Dan Tharp.  Dan has written at a great history of the Rhodesian Light Infantry, Selous Scouts, and Rhodesian Special Air Service in about 60 pages which will help those interested researchers get up to speed on the Rhodesian approach to Counter-Insurgency.  This is a great book and comes at a time as more and more people are getting interested in Rhodesia and some of the success stories they had in battling communist insurgents in the 1970’s.  This truly is the lost chapter of Special Operations history.

The Lost Chapter of Special Operations History: Rhodesia.

Some of the most explosive combat in Special Operations history is almost completely unknown to the Western World. Everyone knows about Navy SEALs and Green Berets but nobody knows about the deep recce, sabotage, and direct action missions conducted by the Rhodesian SAS. The Rhodesian Light Infantry was a killing machine, participating in combat jumps every night during the heat of the Bush War. The Selous Scouts were perhaps the most innovative and daring unconventional warfare unit in history which would pair white soldiers with turncoat black “former” terrorists who would then infiltrate enemy camps.

US military veteran and historian Dan Tharp covers each of these three units in depth in Africa Lost.

The Villians of Reflexive Fire

The three villains in my novel are puppet masters manipulating global events. Far from fiction, they are based on real people.  I won’t say who but I think smart readers can readily determine their identity for themselves.  All three are eugenicists, that is to say they believe that anyone who is not of their social class is inferior and needs to be wiped out.  Eugenicists often talk about other human beings in terms of animal husbandry and write about “culling the herd”.  Does this sound familiar to you?  It should, the American and British Eugenics movement directly influenced Nazi Germany.  The history of the Eugenics movement is well documented in the book, “War Against the Weak,” by Edwin Black but one of the failings of this work is that it does not adequately trace the Eugenics belief system into our present day, much less point the finger at those who still promote this ideology.

In the below videos you will see a one hour presentation given by Dr. Webster Tarpley who walks us through the ideas, history, and belief system of modern eugenics, specifically those ideas promoted by Dr. Eric P. Holdren, the current White House “science czar”.  Yes, I know, Alex Jones the famous “conspiracy theorist” produced these videos.  Please give them an hour of your time, Tarpley is a historian with a long track record.  I’ve read his book “Against Oligarchy” about Venetian banking cartels and find his work to be high quality.
