PARABAT: Personal accounts of paratroopers in combat situations in South Africa's history.

In order to obtain a balanced and fair account, the author interviewed paratroopers of all races. Parabat is also a study of how the exploits of the South African airborne family are seen by the men on the ground. The experiences have been set down exactly as related to the author, with no changes or apologies -- the swearing, the torture, the emotions, the turmoil, the killings and the humor. These are the accounts of the paratrooper family from the war in Angola in the 80's to the various township wars in the 90's, as well as South Africa's intervention in Lesotho in 1998.

Paperback, 261 pages with b&w photographs.

Second edition: Published 2008.
