Op 11 Februarie 2014 woon Wynand en Frances du Toit die 25ste herdenkingsvieringe van die ondertekening
van die Brazzaville Protokol by. President Denis Sassou N'Guesso van die Republiek van die
Kongo hang die Nasionale Meriete Order van die Kongo om Wynand se nek.
Wat hy daar beleef en besef, laat die laaste stukke van die legkaart in plek val, dertig jaar na sy gevangeneming
in Cabinda, Angola.
Lees hier in sy eie woorde van sy stryd om te oorleef, om weer 'n plek in die samelewing in te neem. Hoe
hy en talle ander veteraan-soldate misbruik, misken, en verstoot is. Vergete slagoffers van die destydse
Kodesa-samesprekings, lewe baie oud-soldate in gebrek en armoede, hul onvermoë om in die nuwe
Suid-Afrika aan te pas 'n bewys van die ou regering se kille hantering van die eens magtigste weermag
in Afrika.
Die politieke poppe-meesters trek op 10 Mei 1994 die Josefskleed oor die donker put waarin sy eens getroue soldate en landsburgers
steeds verkeer. Die politieke en militêre vuilspel gerieflik verswyg in die gemak van hul aftree-pakette.
Dit bly 'n ope vraag: was dit nie juis diegene wat bereid was om die grense van lojaliteite oor te steek wat die werklike helde was en die
land van 'n bloedige burgeroorlog gered het nie?

Judasbok beloof om die leser op 'n ongelooflik intense erÂ-varing te neem deur te kyk na wat agter die skerms gebeur het en wat aanleiding daartoe gegee het dat Wynand du Toit 'n huishoudelike naam in Suid-Afrika geword het.

Lees in sy eie woorde die gebeure van daardie nag en die diepgaande nagmerrie van sy gevangeneskap, die sameswerings en die uiteinÂ-delike afleiding dat die hele operasie slegs 'n openingÂ-skuif was wat uiteindelik die Suid-Afrikaanse volk moes mislei tot oorgawe in Angola en die onafhanklikheid van Namibië.

During May 1985, a South African Special Forces Team consisting out of nine operators, landed on a
beach in the oil-rich province of Cabinda in Angola. Their target was the six massive oil-storage tanks.
The subsequent fire fight led to the death of two soldiers and the capture of captain Wynand du Toit. This
meant only one thing: Betrayal!
Read in his own words of this harrowing experience and the pain of his incarceration, the happenings
behind the scenes and the realization that this was just an opening move that would eventually mislead
the South African population to end the war in Angola and the independence of Namibia.
Judas Goat promised to take the reader on a unbelievable journey of hardship, suffering and betrayal.
This eventually results in Wynand du Toit becoming a household name in South Africa.

The Angolan war has been described as the bloodiest colonial insurgency in the history of Africa south of the Sahara. But it was to become a conflict that Portugal would lose not on the battlefield, but in the hearts of its own citizens. After a thirteen-year war of attrition in Angola, and facing increasing setbacks in two of its other war-torn territories, an enervated Portugal with its weary armed forces would deal the final blow to itself.

A quarter-century after the last shots were fired during the Border War, many misconceptions about South Africa's longest war remains.  Since Willem Steenkamp's best-selling South Africa's Border War was published in 1989 the rifle barrels have cooled, and the smoke and dust of the battlefield have settled. This revised version of the classic puts the new facts on the table and gives an incisive look back into the war that millions of South Africans will never forget.

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.

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.

Steve Joubert had always wanted to be a pilot and the only way he could afford to do so, was to join the South African Air Force in the late 1970s. As an adventurous young man with a wicked sense of humour, he tells of the many amusing escapades he had as a trainee pilot. But soon he is sent to fight in the Border War in northern Namibia (then South West Africa) where he is exposed to the carnage
of war. The pilots of the Alouette helicopters were witness to some of the worst scenes of the Border War. Often, they were the first to arrive after a deadly landmine accident. In the fiercest battles their gunships regularly supplied life-saving air cover to troops on the ground.

South African Mirages and Cuban MiG-21s dogfighting over Cuito Cuanavale, the largest tank battle on African soil since El Alamein; Puma troopships shot out of the skies by Strela missiles and RPG-7 rockets; Alouette III gunships hovering menacingly above Koevoet tracker-combat teams as they close in for the kill; Hercules and Transall transports disgorging their loads of Parabats over Cassinga; suicidal helicopter hot-extractions of Recce operators deep in enemy territory; and a lone Alouette pilot who disobeyed orders and under intense ground fire evacuated a critically wounded soldier...such is the story of the South African Air Force, the SAAF, over the 23-year period 1966-1989, the period of conflict that became known as the 'Border War'. Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, the SAAF was effectively South Africa's first line of defence against Soviet expansionism in southern Africa. That the Soviets, through their surrogates - the Cuban military, Angola's FAPLA and Namibia's SWAPO - sought a communist regime in South Africa is indisputable, as too was the SAAF's skill, quality, determination and capability to defeat the best Soviet air defences of the time. This account covers all the major operations that the SAAF was involved in, from Operation Blouwildebees, the opening salvo of the conflict at Omgulumbashe, South West Africa in 1966 to the final curtain, Operation Merlyn, the so-called April Fool's Day 'war' of 1989 when the SAAF and Koevoet, almost alone, frustrated SWAPO's last throw of the dice with its illegal invasion of South West Africa. In this account, making reference to all the principal operations of the war, Baxter examines and brings to life the squadrons and aviators that fought in both counter-insurgency and conventional warfare roles. Besides an extensive selection of rare photographs, the book features a comprehensive section on camouflage and markings and 6 pages of colour aircraft profiles and insignia by noted SAAF authority William Marshall, making this title especially useful for modellers.

Each operation has its own story and its own heroes.
Operation Swivel is the first Operation where in the first qualified SA Paratroopers took part in.
Operation Hurdle must have been the first Operation to investigate USSR involvement into Southern Africa by an South African Army element.
Operation Dikmelk was a operation where not one shot was fired or any enemy seen.
Operation Super was an unexpected operation with possibly the most insurgents killed in one day by a small group of soldiers.

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.
