From the ashes of two Angolan wars – a terrorist and a civil war – a new South African Army unit was born; a unit that had to fight
South Africa’s terrorist war on Angola’s side of the border – a stepchild, hidden away aside in the bush.
Bothma expertly covers the weal and woe of the unit in this fascinating book. When he discusses the war against SWAPO he
does not take sides – this is not an “us and them” story. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend reading it.

This book may be seen as a watershed contribution to the so-called Border War literature that, until now, has been dominated by journalists and writers with questionable motives. Abel Esterhuyse – Militaria
Bothma went to a great deal of trouble writing this eminently readable and valuable book, including visiting Northern Namibia
and Southern Angola several times. Leon Engelbrecht – defenceWeb
