This is the story of one of the world's most effective Special Forces units told by the men who served in it. Breaking with conventional military thinking, the South African Police created Koevoet by refining the concept of the counter-insurgency group pioneered in Rhodesia during the Bush War in order to provide up-to-date intelligence about an elusive enemy. Now at last the men themselves tell their own stories of the exploits of that famous unit.

    Koevoet - The men speak

    Great coffee table book to complete my collection. Book has been well set out and easy to read. For me the earlier stuff prior to Rhodesia was not reallt relevant to Koevoet, but was interesting history lesson anyway.
