Dhofar Insurgency

The insurgency in Oman between 1962 and 1976 was not as world renowned as perhaps the Viet Nam conflict; however, its favorable result is one which should be recognized as a total victory for the Western supported Sultanate of Oman over the Communist inspired Popular Front for the Liberation of Oman. Waged entirely in the province of Dhofar, the British led and supported Sultan's Armed Forces eventually were victorious, but not without serious early setbacks and a coup that replaced the Sultan.

    I sometimes look up these addresses, and with houses in the UK typically not being torn down a lot are still there. Seeing where someone lived to me adds a personal touch to their stories...
