'Dancing a tango with death' was the daily life of the DCC - the Directorate of Covert Collection - secret agents, working in what JJ 'Tolletjie' Botha called 'hostile countries'. Who were these men? Airline pilots, Belgian missionaries, German industrialists, engineers, medical doctors, high-ranking officers of enemy countries and last, but not least, people like a well-known Namibian lawyer and a famous, internationally acclaimed South African singer; people who, sometimes unwittingly, collaborated with the 'shadow's men', believing they were helping friendly countries … Did the document prepared by General Pierre Steyn, the famous top secret Steyn Report, really exist?

In this book you will find the full original document whose existence has been denied by FW de Klerk and his closest allies. Did Judge Richard Goldstone act bona fide by accepting in his final report the information given to him by Counter Intelligence and the NIS, information that, at the very end, emerged as “hearsay”? Was Judge Goldstone aware of the final objective of the tandem pair Steyn-De Klerk to decapitate the South African Defence Force?

Did the top structure of the DCC maintain close contacts with most of the Western intelligence services, and particularly the British MI6? Was any one of the hundreds of civilian and military men 'listed' as part of the infamous Third Force ever condemned? Was Staal Burger or Ferdi Barnard really part of the DCC or were they 'imposed' by the then Chief of the Army, General Kat Liebenberg? Did you know that more than half the African members of the first Mandela cabinet had been on the DCC's payroll? Why did the Motsuenyane Commission of Enquiry have to suspend its search, and never published the list of ANC members massacred or disappeared, victims of their own comrades?

Sopas die boek gelees, of moet ek eerder sê, probeer lees en ek sê so omrede die kwaliteit van die druk baie swak is (die uitgawe wat ek ontvang het), ek kon omtrent net 80% van die boek gelees kry agv 'n klomp blank bladsye in die middel van verskeie hoofstukke en dan ook die kopieë/afdrukke van hand geskrewe byvoegsels is die meeste ook byna onleesbaar. Andersins 'n insiggewende lees met heelwat onbeantwoorde vrae, wat seker die meeste van ons wat gedien het, nooit besef het wat agter die skerms aangegaan het.
Stel voor dat daar bietjie beter kwaliteits beheer uitgeoefen moet word voordat boeke versend word, want die boeke is nie kleingeld nie.

Excellent, I could relate to the book because I worked there for a while.
