Daar was hewige vuurgevegte, oorwinnings, maar ook verliese . . .

1 Recce, Agter vyandelike linies, neem die leser tot in die Recces se “binnekamer”. In hul eie woorde vertel Recce-operateurs van die lewensgevaarlike operasies wat hulle onder groot geheimhouding in die laat 1970's in Angola en Rhodesië uitgevoer het.

Die leser sien die operateurs sweet in die vliegtuig of duikboot en beleef die gevaar wanneer hulle in die nagdonker riviere met krokodille trotseer. Die spanning en adrenalien loop hoog wanneer die Recces springstof in 'n treintonnel diep in vyandelike gebied plaas of 'n groot brandstofbergingsplek in 'n Angolosese hawestad in 'n vlammehel omskep.

Dié wat daar was vertel van die spanning, afwagting, vrees, adrenalien, moegheid, dors en hartseer wat hulle beleef het, maar ook van die humoristiese momente en die vriendskapsbande wat gesmee is.

1 Recce, Agter vyandelike linies is Alexander Strachan, bekroonde skrywer en gewese Recce, se opvolgboek op sy topverkoper: 1 Recce, Die nag behoort aan ons.

Die rowwe en eerlike vertelling van 'n 'Bat in the bosoorloe van Namibie en Angola. 19 en Gewapen is 'n aksiebelaaide vertelling van Granger Korff se twee diensjare in 1980/81 saam met 1 Valskermbataljon tydens die hoogtepunt van die Suid Afrikaanse Bosoorlog in Suid Wes Afrika (Namibie) en Angola. Afgesien van die standaard teen-insurgensie aktiwiteite van die Fire Force krygsverrigtinge asook lokvalle en patrollies om SWAPO guerrillas te vind en te vernietig, was hy ook betrokke by verskeie noemenswaardige konvensionele oorgrensoperasies deur die Suid Afrikaanse Weermag (SAW) soos Protea, Daisy en Carnation, wat in Angola in beweeg het teen FAPLA (Angolese MPLA troepe) sowel as hulle Kubaanse en Sowjetbondgenote. Korff se vormingsjare op die Oos-Rand as 'n straatbakleiende jeug het 'n invloed op sy toekomstige militere loopbaan gehad wat ontsier was deur omstredenheid. Hy was konstant in die moeilikheid: Sy afwesigheid sonder verlof op die vooraand van die oorlog omdat hy na die front beweeg het; dat hy verskyn het voor 'n krygsraad na hy n sersantmajoor in trane gehad het na hy hom aangerand het voor sy troepe; vuis gevegte met die dwelmeenheid en sy in hegtenisname na die uitmergelende sewe-week, 700km Recce keuringsuithouresies, is maar net 'n paar van die kleurvolle staaltjies wat hierdie vertelling van diens in die Suid Afrikaanse Weermag deurspikkel. Sy skryfstyl is pittig, brutaal, selfveragtend en by tye humoristies - maar altyd eerlik.

19 with a Bullet - A South African paratrooper in Angola is a fast-moving, action-packed account of Granger Korff's two years' service during 1980/81 with 1 Parachute Battalion at the height of the South African 'bush war' in South West Africa (Namibia) and Angola. Apart from the 'standard' counter-insurgency activities of Fireforce operations, ambushing and patrols, to contact and destroy SWAPO guerrillas, he was involved in several massive South African Defence Force (SADF) conventional cross-border operations, such as Protea, Daisy and Carnation, into Angola to take on FAPLA (Angolan MPLA troops) and their Cuban and Soviet allies.

The 20th Century has been one of enduring, rapid and fundamental social and political change. In Southern Africa, innumerable wars, rebellions, uprisings and protests have marked the integration, disintegration and then reintegration of both society and subcontinent during this period.
The century started with a brief but total war. Less than ten years later victorious Britain brought the conquered Boer republics, and the Cape and Natal colonies, together into the Union of South Africa. And the military of this early creation served not only in all of the major wars of the twentieth century, but also in a number of regional struggles: rebellion on the part of Afrikaner nationalists, industrial unrest fanned by syndicalists, and uprisings conducted chiefly but not exclusively by disenfranchised black South Africans.
The century ended as it started, with a war. But this was a limited war, a flashpoint of the Cold War, which embraced more than just the subcontinent and lasted a long, twenty-three years.
The first of its kind, A Military History of Modern South Africa provides an overview of South African military history from 1899 to 2000. Focusing on the campaigns and battles, it also brings discussion on the evolving military policy and the development of the South African military as an institution into a single volume.
Ian van der Waag is an associate professor and chair of the Department of Military History in the Faculty of Military Sciences, Stellenbosch University. A transnational historian, he has published extensively on imperial and colonial defence, South Africa's wars of the twentieth century, and the mutual, reciprocal impacts between war and South African society.

Few, if any, regiments have left their mark on the history of modern warfare as did the Rhodesian Light Infantry. Raised on 1 February 1961 the RLI first evolved into a commando unit then became involved in mundane border-control duties in the Zambezi Valley. Later as the bush war intensified the RLI was to evolve into a ruthlessly efficient killing machine . This book chronicles the military evolution of the RLI from the peacetime soldiering days through to the constant high-intensity combat of the final years. Initially comprising volunteers from South Africa and Britain the RLI was always under strength until 1976 when the percentage of national servicemen serving in the RLI was dramatically increased to meet ever-increasing operational demands. The historical record will show how these young men, led and commanded by an outstanding combination of tough and battle-hardened non-commissioned officers and a skilled and aggressive officer corps, inflicted massive damage on the ZANLA and ZIPRA insurgent forces. The ruthless efficiency of the joint Air Force and RLI Fireforce operations where the RLI was deployed by helicopter and later also by parachute was to account for the deaths of in excess of 12,000 insurgents during the course of the war at a rate of 160 enemy killed for every one of their own lost: a truly remarkable record.

In early 1976 while working underground as a blaster on ERPM gold mine in Boksburg, Greg Latter was called up for a three-month army camp in Angola, and there was no getting out of it. The truth is, he was actually keen to go. South Africa was at war with the Cubans and he was overcome by a peculiar sense of patriotism. This story is about those three months, told from the day he received his call-up telegram to the day after he got back.
There is nothing gung-ho in the pages of this book. It's mainly about the cock-ups, of which there were countless, the major one involving Greg himself. Greg has the distinction of being the only soldier in the Transvaal Horse Artillery who saw action in Angola. He shot up one of the SADF's own vehicles after being ordered to do so by Signalman Podolski, who was in charge of the radio that rainy night. Greg was court-martialled and found not guilty, although thereafter he was taken off guard duty in case of a repeat cock-up. Which suited him no end, of course.

This book is also about the little things, like the kak food; the warm ice cream and hot beers that were so kindly delivered to the middle of nowhere by helicopter; and the butcher who came up with the great idea of finding a waterhole so they could shoot a cow to have some fresh meat. It's also about the Portuguese refugees Greg encountered, families fleeing from God knows what, lounge suites strapped to the roofs of their cars. It's about a man coming of age and realising he never needed to go down into the darkness again. The day after he got back from that camp, Greg went down the mine shaft but came straight back out again, signed last shift, and started to live.

Operation Savannah entered the annals of South African military tradition four decades ago. Though there have been several books published about this 'bare bones' strike force that marched almost unimpeded a quarter of the way across the African continent, few are aware of the significant role played during the course of these hostilities by a fragmented Bushman unit led by one of the most enigmatic personalities to emerge in uniform since the end of World War II.
Until now, Colonel Delville Linford has had very little to say about his role as commander of Combat Group Alpha, or of that played by his Bushmen soldiers. In this volume he allows us a peek under the covers, not only how this tiny combat force operated, but also many 'behind the screens' machinations which explain how the unit was formed.
Following the independence of Angola from Portugal, a significant segment of that country's Bushman community crossed the border into what was then still South West Africa - Namibia today - and sought refuge with the South Africans. He goes on to tell us a lot about the Bushman people themselves: the nature of their society, tribal traditions, bush-craft, customs that have become ingrained with time, historical fears, life in the wild, tracking - as well as much else about a historical culture that goes back millennia. Together with many of Colonel Linford's empathetic observations of these intriguing 'little' people, all go towards making for a rather fascinating read.
A hallmark volume with an introduction by General Constand Viljoen, Colonel Linford offers us - for the first time - his own 'warts and all' report, not only of the legendary 31 Battalion but also of his career in the South African Army.
Cmdt Delville Linford was die South African Army's last liaison officer at Serpa Pinto, from April 1973 to July 1974. Because of his knowledge of Angola and its people, he was tasked by Brigadier Constand Viljoen to establish a base in the western Caprivi to accommodate, equip and train these Bushman soldiers so that they could help to protect the South West African border against Swapo. With the help of six national servicemen and 39 black troops, Linford established Camp Alpha. Combat Group Alpha participated in Operation Savannah from October 1975 to January 1976, after which the company was named 31 Battalion and operated in south-east Angola and Zambia.

Re-jacketed reprint.
At the Front is the memoirs of the legendary General Jannie Geldenhuys - a soldier, strategist, diplomat and a sportsman. It takes us through negotiations, threats and major operations of the Border War in South West Africa (today Namibia) and Angola in the late 1970s and 1980s. Geldenhuys introduces us to international politicians, ordinary soldiers, friends and foes and traces the role they played in the war.

He shares his first-hand experiences of important operations such as Operation Smokeshell and debunks a few commonly held beliefs about the battles around Cuito Cuanavale towards the end of the war by providing facts and figures about the loss of life and equipment on both sides. He also reveals the surprising facts about
the costs and other implications of the war for southern Africa, making Geldenhuys' story both of military and historical importance.

This book is far more than a general's account of a war. At the Front presents a world where one meets friction de guerre and discovers the strange intertwined nature of war and peace, success and failure, good and bad luck, chance and fate, winning and losing. General Jannie Geldenhuys tells a compelling story that radiates
graciousness, compassion and an indomitable sense of humour.

A riveting, action-filled account that sheds light on the realities of working in a war-torn country, this is the first book on the war in Iraq by a South African.
Johan Raath and a security team were escorting American engineers to a power plant south of Baghdad when they were ambushed. He had first arrived in Iraq only two weeks before. This was a small taste of what was to come over the next 13 years while he worked there as a private military contractor (PMC). His mission? Not to wage war but to protect lives. Raath acted as a bodyguard for VIPs and, more often, engineers who were involved in construction projects to rebuild the country after the 2003 war. His physical and mental endurance was tested to the limit in his efforts to safeguard construction sites that were regularly subjected to mortar and suicide attacks. Key to his survival was his training as a Special Forces operator, or Recce.

Working in places called the Triangle of Death and driving on the 'Hell Run', Raath had numerous hair-raising experiences. As a trained combat medic he also helped to save people's lives after two suicide bomb attacks on sites he then worked at.
