The paratrooper is the elite element of any army, The 'para' is handpicked, formidable and highly trained, using the element of surprise in his attack. He is generally outnumbered in the field, relying on his personal skill and courage to succeed.

On 4th May 1978, the South African Defence Force carried out its first ever completely airborne combat mission onto the town of Cassinga.

At that period in time, Cassinga was the northern headquarters of the South West African Peoples Organisation (SWAPO), and was situated 250km inside Angola.

This documentary revisits the action and recounts some of the personal experiences of paratroopers who took part in the action.

Running time: Approx 68 minutes

Attack on Cassinga

Great DvD. Hard facts of what happened, despite the propoganda the enemy had to try and act if it was a "refugee camp". Salute to a once superb defence force
