Recce, Behind Enemy Lines, takes the reader into the Recces' inside chamber. In their own words the Recces detail life ­threatening operations performed under great secrecy during the late 1970's in Angola and Rhodesia. 

The reader sees the operators sweat in the airplane or submarine and experiences the danger with them when they face crocodile invested rivers in the middle of the night. The tension and adrenaline run high when the Recces place explosives in a train tunnel deep in hostile territory or turn a large fuel storage site at an Angolan port city into a blaze of fire.

Those who were present tell of the tension, anticipation, fear, adrenaline, exhaustion, thirst and sadness they experienced, but also of the humorous moments and the bonds of friendship forged. 

1 Recce, Behind Enemy Lines is Alexander Strachan's, award­ winning author and former Recce, sequel to his best­selling first book in this series: 1 Recce, The Night Belongs to Us.

Paperback, 324 pages

Zarko Ivanovic
RECCE: Behind Enemy Lines, Volume 2

Excellent book about the South Africa's special operations forces.

Book moves on from where the previous book (Volume 1) ended. This one is more concentrated on the actions after 1977 up to early 1980's and covers South African actions during the Rhodesian Bush War and war in Angola.

Excellent sequel to the first book, recommended.

Graham Morrison
A very insightful read

Having served 14 1/2 years in the SADF PF, I really enjoyed the authenticity of the author's style and content.. It is so gripping its reads like an exciting novel.
If a follow up is written and published, I will be standing in line for a copy.
