Colonial rule

Kaúlza de Arriaga, as the Commander in Chief of the Portugese Armed Forces, was in charge of Portugese forces in Mozambique from 1969 until 1974, taking over from General António Augusto dos Santos and organizing the Operation Nó Górdio ("Gordian Knot Operation") in 1970. This operation was the largest and most expensive military operation performed by the Portuguese Armed Forces during the entire Portuguese Colonial War (1961-1974).
