From Cabinda in Angola to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania 4 Reconnaissance Regiment conducted numerous clandestine seaborne raids during the Border War. They attacked strategic targets such as oil facilities, transport infrastructure and even Russian ships. All the while 4 Recce's existence and capability was largely kept secret, even within the South African Defence Force.

With unparalleled access to previously top secret documents, 50 operations undertaken by 4 Recce, other Special Forces units and the South African Navy are described. The daunting Operation Kerslig (1981), in which an operator died in a raid on a Luanda oil refinery and others were injured, is retold in spine-tingling detail.

The book reveals the versatility and effectiveness of this elite unit and also tells of both the successes and failures of its actions. Sometimes missions go wrong, as in Operation Argon (1985) when Captain Wynand Du Toit was captured.

This fascinating work will enthrall anyone with an interest in Special Forces operations. Iron Fist from the Sea takes you right to the raging surf, to the adrenalin and fear that is seaborne raiding.

Gedurende die Grensoorlog het die Spesiale Magte se 4 Verkenningsregiment tientalle klandestiene seewaartse operasies saam met die SA Vloot uitgevoer. Van Cabinda in Angola tot Dar es Salaam in Tanzanië het hulle strategiese teikens soos oliedepots, vervoerinfrastruktuur en selfs Russiese skepe aangeval. Die bestaan van 4 Recce is grootliks geheim gehou, ook in die SAW.
Ystervuis uit die see beskryf 50 operasies deur 4 Recce, ander Spesmagte-eenhede en die SA Vloot. Daaronder tel Operasie Kerslig (1981), waartydens 'n operateur dood en ander beseer is in 'n aanval op 'n olieraffinadery in Luanda, en Operasie Argon (1985) toe kaptein Wynand du Toit in Angola gevange geneem is.

Die skrywers, wat self aan etlike van die operasies deelgeneem het, het ook toegang gekry tot uiters geheime dokumente wat intussen gedeklassifiseer is. Hul dramatiese vertellings wys hoe veelsydig en doeltreffend hierdie elite-eenheid was.

Die omvattende boek is 'n moet vir enigeen met 'n belangstelling in die Spesmagte. Dit neem jou na die hart van die aksie, die adrenalien en vrees van seewaartse operasies.

As die Recces die dag in die bos in stap, slaan die luislange, die aasvoëls en selfs die leeus op die vlug. Wat jy kan vang, kan jy eet, sê dié manne.
Recce-resepte vir kos, die bos, die lewe is vol tong-in-die-kies resepte en stories oor die Recces se ervarings gedurende die Grensoorlogjare en tot 1997. Die boek plaas jou in die skoene van hierdie legendariese en geheimsinnige Spesiale Magte-operateurs.
Ontdek wat dit verg om vir weke aaneen uit 'n rugsak te leef, hoe om te oorleef op dit wat die natuur verskaf en selfs hoe om 'n leeu kaalhand van 'n karkas te verjaag. Aasvoëlsop, enigiemand? Of wat van vlieënde vis vir voorgereg met gebraaide luislang vir hoofgereg?
Die stories oor hul waaghalsige operasies gedurende die eerste 25 jaar van die Spesiale Magte vat jou van Durban na Langebaan en deur Phalaborwa na die res van Afrika en selfs Rusland.
Hulle verklap boonop hul unieke filosofie - bly in die oomblik, pas aan en doen jou ding!
Of staan opsy, want die Recces kom verby.

Vulture soup, anyone? Or how about diesel-dipped dog biscuits as a side to some fried python? If you prefer something less severe, then how about having a braai on top of a submarine out in the middle of the ocean?
The South African Special Forces, or Recces, are known for being fearless and tough. Not only must they pass a notoriously gruelling selection course, but once they have qualified as operators, they often spend weeks in the bush living off rat packs and whatever else they can find.
This cookbook with a difference combines stories about their experiences in the field during the Border War with recipes from the bush and the sea, and even a few from the kitchen. Fortunately, most meals are edible! These recipe stories offer insight into the scope of activities of the different reconnaissance units, including 4 Recce at Langebaan, 5 Recce at Phalaborwa and 1 Recce at Durban.
Readers will also learn about some of the important life skills needed to be a member of the Special Forces as well as Recce philosophy, such as staying in the moment and being adaptable. This book feeds into the public's fascination with this elite unit and will help to break down some of the secrecy around the Recces.
