At last, the re-written, revamped version of Selous Scouts - Top Secret War: Pamwe Chete. With new, previously unpublished material, including the roll of honour and full schedules of citations, awards and Wings lists. Formed in 1973 in the war-ravaged Rhodesia, the Selous Scouts, in a few short years, established a fearsome reputation as one of the world's most daring, ruthless and imaginative counter-insurgency units. Fully multiracial, this regiment was to prove that black operatives were as effective as their white counterparts. Accounting for nearly 70 percent of enemy guerrilla casualties, directly and indirectly, the regiment faded away, a political embarrassment, at Zimbabwean independence in 1980. This is the definitive account of this legendary unit's history, written and compiled by the regiment's founder, Lieutenant-Colonel Ron Reid-Daly. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
