1-Recce was the sharpest, most versatile and deadliest specialist unit in the entire South African army. These men were super fit, unbelievably tough and stopped at nothing. Time and again they put their lives at risk in the execution of highly secret operations behind enemy lines.

For decades these missions have been kept secret. Now, for the first time, the Recces' most famous generals (including the legendary colonel Jan Breytenbach) reveal their involvement in many highly sensitive political operations.

Explosive revelations are made of a collapsed mission to blow up key ANC figures in the final years of the apartheid era. They tell of 1-Recce's involvement in the controversial Border War and reveal the existence of a top secret squadron in the then Rhodesian army.

After years of myths and secrecy, this book gives a new perspective on the Recces and the way they operated invisibly behind the scenes.

Title OK

The writer might be a well trained operator but he should have obtained the services of a professional writer to write the book. The writer does not follow a systematically way of sharing information and it is frustrating to be given the same information over and over. I have read various books of Jan Breytenbach and Wynand du Toit and the information was provided in in a good order. Factually it is very good book and the information correspond with other books that was read.
