Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner

The following are a series of war correspondence films from the Simba Rebellion in the Congo in 1964/65 set to the tune of “Roland the Thompson Gunner” by Warren Zevon. The film features a platoon of mercenaries from Europe conducting a platoon attack on the town of Boende in the Cong. The mercenaries primarily come from the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. Of note there is an ex-ss officer in the film according to the source, I can’t confirm this though.

It features some brutal combat and the summary execution of a rebel so it is NSFW.

      Hoping that the righteous might just might just might just come
      I heard the General whisper to his aide-de-camp
      “Be watchful for Mohammed’s lamp”
