From basic training to witnessing atrocities across the border, this is the story of thousands of infantrymen who were deployed in the SADF, on or across the Border. Colourful characters, hilarious anecdotes and wild partying are interspersed with introspective passages where the author reflects on the warrior spirit awakened by adrenaline and danger, and the life-and-death choices troops were forced into making.

Anelia Heese hervertel die rou en soms skokkende stories van Suid-Afrikaanse mans wat in die 1970's en 1980's verplig is om weermagdiens te doen. Sy gesels onder meer met die bekroonde joernalis Murray La Vita, die skrywer Deon Lambrecht, genl. Roland De Vries, en talle ander oor wat hulle destyds deurgemaak het. Die meeste dienspligtiges was eintlik maar nog seuns toe hulle gedwing is om aan te tree en hul hare onseremonieël afgeskeer is.
Hulle praat hier eerlik oor patrollies in die townships, die eerste “kontak”, die eerste keer toe iemand 'n makker verloor het, hoe sommige “terrie-ore” versamel het, en die interne stryd wat dikwels agterna gevolg het.
Anelia vra soms ongemaklike vrae om haarself en ander, veral jonger Suid-Afrikaners, te help sin maak van diensplig en die nadraai daarvan. Bowenal wie nou eintlik die vyand was, en wat dit beteken om jou land te dien . . .

Over the past century, South Africa's military has established itself in several defining battles and operations. Preferring manoeuvre over attrition, and often punching above their weight, they have become known for their tenacity, dash, and ability to defy the odds. Their unique command style also sets them apart from other armies and has helped them excel in challenging circumstances
In 20 Battles, military historians Evert Kleynhans and David Brock Katz investigate how South Africa's way of war evolved over a 100-year period. They track the evolution of the doctrine and structure of the South African defence forces, rediscovering historical continuity, if any, and the lessons learned in past battles and operations such as Otavifontein, Delville Wood, Southern Ethiopia, Tobruk, Chiusi, Savannah, Cassinga, Cuito Cuanavale and Boleas
The book also identifies a number of firsts for the defence force, such as the first-ever deployment during the 1914 Industrial Strike; the varied deployments across different theatres during both world wars; the first large-scale cross-border deployments during the Border War; the first deployment of the new South African National Defence Force after 1994; and, culminating with the recent, and now infamous, Battle of Bangui

What was it like to fly a MiG at 1,100km/h in combat over Angola?
Most books on the Angolan Bush War, especially those in English, present the South African perspective of events. Now a former
MiG-23 Squadron Commander of the Cuban Air Force has collaborated with an ex-SAAF pilot to paint a remarkable new picture of the aerial conflict over Angola in the 1980s.
In The MiG Diaries the recollections of Lt-Col Eduardo González Sarría are blended by Lionel Reid with those of air combatants from the Angolan, Cuban and South African air forces. Many are being published for the first time. Using their own aviation knowledge and experience of the conflict, Sarría and Reid combine the accounts of these diverse combatants - former comrades and foe - to provide original insights into, and a more holistic description of, what happened in the skies over Angola. The results, often quite different to what the opposing sides had believed, reveal a surprising, and more complete, picture of events.
The wonderful sketching pencil of Sean Thackwray, himself a former fighter pilot, helps to bring this unique story to life, along with select images, including many not seen in print in South Africa.

Over the years, many have signed up for the South African Special Forces selection course but only a select few have ever passed. The gruelling course pushes recruits to their physical and mental limits.
Those who make it through selection still have to complete a demanding year-long training cycle before they can join the ranks of this elite unit. In A Breed Apart, former Special Forces operator Johan Raath offers a rare insider's view on the training he and other young soldiers received in the mid-1980s. Drawing on the reminiscences of his fellow Recces, he describes the phases of selection and training and offers valuable insights into what makes a successful operator.
The courses in the training cycle show the range and standard of Special Forces training, including weapons handling, bushcraft/survival, parachuting, demolitions and urban warfare, as well as seaborne and riverine operations. For Raath and his cycle buddies, the training cycle culminated in an operation in southern Angola where the young Recces saw action for the first time.
Much of what Raath underwent still forms part of present-day Special Forces training. Comprehensive and revealing, this book shows why these soldiers truly are a breed apart.

An acclaimed expert on violence and seasoned peacebuilder explains the five reasons why conflict (rarely) blooms into war, and how to interrupt that deadly process.

It's easy to overlook the underlying strategic forces of war, to see it solely as a series of errors, accidents, and emotions gone awry. It's also easy to forget that war shouldn't happen-and most of the time it doesn't. Around the world there are millions of hostile rivalries, yet only a tiny fraction erupt into violence. Too many accounts of conflict forget this.

With a counterintuitive approach, Blattman reminds us that most rivals loathe one another in peace. That's because war is too costly to fight. Enemies almost always find it better to split the pie than spoil it or struggle over thin slices. So, in those rare instances when fighting ensues, we should ask: what kept rivals from compromise?

Why We Fight draws on decades of economics, political science, psychology, and real-world interventions to lay out the root causes and remedies for war, showing that violence is not the norm; that there are only five reasons why conflict wins over compromise; and how peacemakers turn the tides through tinkering, not transformation.

From warring states to street gangs, ethnic groups and religious sects to political factions, there are common dynamics to heed and lessons to learn. Along the way, we meet vainglorious European monarchs, African dictators, Indian mobs, Nazi pilots, British football hooligans, ancient Greeks, and fanatical Americans.

What of remedies that shift incentives away from violence and get parties back to deal-making? Societies are surprisingly good at interrupting and ending violence when they want to-even the gangs of Medellin, Columbia do it. Realistic and optimistic, this is book that lends new meaning to the old adage, 'Give peace a chance.'

Norman McFarlane was a teenager just out of high school when he was conscripted for national service and sent to Angola. Like so many other ordinary troopies, he was thrown into the horror, deprivation and banality of war during Operation Savannah (1975─1976), the apartheid regime's secret campaign to influence the outcome of Angolan independence.
He recounts his loss of innocence in Angola, the subsequent 'camps' and his journey towards confronting his post-traumatic stress disorder. Told with disarming honesty and humour, he gives voice to a generation of white South African men forced into a grisly, life-defining experience.

Brig.genl. Willem (Kaas) van der Waals kyk terugskouend na sy loopbaan wat gekenmerk is deur veelsydigheid — valskermsoldaat en instrukteur, operasionele diens in SWA, Angola en Rhodesië, militêre diplomaat en SAW se hoof van buitelandse betrekkinge. Hy was ook dosent in strategiese studies, hoof van sielkundige oorlogvoering, inligtingsoffisier en strategiese beplanner by die sekretariaat van die Staatsveiligheidsraad. Daarna is hy die eerste veiligheidshoof van die stad Pretoria. Dis juis díé veelsydigheid wat hom enersyds met gesagsfigure in die weermag laat bots het en andersyds wyd aanwendbaar gemaak het.

A former South African Air Force pilot who saw action throughout the region from the 1970s, Neall Ellis is the best-known mercenary combat aviator alive. Apart from flying Alouette helicopter gunships in Angola, he has fought in the Balkan War (for Islamic forces), flown Mi-8s for Executive Outcomes, and thereafter an Mi-8 fondly dubbed“Bokkie” for Colonel Tim Spicer in Sierra Leone. For the past two years, as a “civilian contractor,” Ellis has been flying helicopter support missions in Afghanistan, where, he reckons, he has had more close shaves than in his entire previous four-decade career; twice he turned the enemy back from the gates of Freetown, effectively preventing the rebels from overrunning Sierra Leone's capital. Known as Nellis to his friends, he was also the first mercenary to work hand-in-glove with British ground and air assets in a modern guerrilla war. This book describes the full career of this storied aerial warrior, from the bush and jungles of Africa to the forests of the Balkans and the merciless mountains of today's Afghanistan. Along the way the reader encounters a multi-ethnic array of enemies ranging from ideological to cold-blooded to pure evil, as well as well as examples of incredible heroism for hire.

The inside story of South Africa's worst military scandal since apartheid

'A powerful cocktail of searing front-line war reportage, investigative journalism, and history… with echoes of Black Hawk Down, of Rorke's Drift, and of Heart of Darkness' - Andrew Harding, BBC foreign correspondent and author

In March 2013, South Africa suffered its worst military defeat since the end of apartheid. After a battle that lasted almost two days, 200 crack troops who engaged 7 000 rebels in the Central African Republic were forced to negotiate a ceasefire at their base. Thirteen South African soldiers died in the battle, with two more later succumbing to their wounds.

The mission was shrouded in mystery from the start. The deployment and the diplomatic machinations that led to it were kept secret from the South African public and Parliament. So, too, were an assortment of shadowy commercial interests held by businessmen, some with close ties to the African National Congress. In an investigation spanning more than seven years, the authors gained exclusive access to the soldiers who fought valiantly against overwhelming odds; travelled to Bangui to obtain documentation and meet the rebel leaders who took part in the battle; interviewed a deposed dictator living in exile in Paris; and spoke to the widows of the fallen soldiers. They also met influential fixers and dealmakers, and unearthed secret files containing bribe agreements to unravel an intricate web of corruption and patronage reaching the highest echelons of power in South Africa and the CAR.

After close to a decade of speculation and rumour, The Battle of Bangui lays bare for the first time both the litany of strategic, tactical and logistical blunders that ended in military disaster, and the secret diplomatic and commercial deals that led to South Africa's worst foreign misadventure of the democratic era. It's also a cracking war story filled with heroism, camaraderie, terror, pathos and triumph over adversity.
