The Rhodesians discovered that the set-piece battles and decisive victories of the 1960s were not to be repeated. Nevertheless, within two years, the security forces asserted a kind of mastery over the north-east, or Operation Hurricane as it was called. By December 1974 when the South Africans and Zambians persuaded both sides to implement a cease-fire and to enter negotiations, the Rhodesians believed that less than 100 guerillas were active in the operation. The real setbacks had been political and economic.
