Nie-fiksie / Non-fiction - Military / Militêr
Vlamgat, literally 'flaming hole' in Afrikaans, was the nickname the South African Air Force (SAAF) gave to the Mirage F1, its formidable frontline jet fighter, during South Africa's long 'border wars' in South West Africa (Namibia) and Angola from the late 1960's to the late 1980's. Vlamgat is a gripping account of these pilots and their deeds of bravery; their experiences are authentically related with accuracy, humour and pathos - by the author, himself a Vlammie.
