For anyone curious about just how rapidly a country can disintegrate despite being tough militarily I would highly recommend the book about Rhodesia “A handful of hard men” By hannes wessels. it’s about the Rhodesian special air service. It’s basically like the movie Zulu but much more recent in time. It’s pretty astounding. I suspect most of the people on this forum will appreciate how such a small force had such an incredible string of military success. Of course they were betrayed by the west and South Africa and they lost the political war. South Africa now faces many of the same problems they did. Karma is a b8tch apparently.
