By August 1974 the Portuguese had all but abandoned Angola, its erstwhile colony, and there was a fear in both the Intelligence services of South Africa and America that the country was likely to fall the hands of the MPLA, generally regarded as a Soviet surrogate. It was that fear that triggered the training by South Africa of guerrilla groups opposed to MPLA. One group of FNLA guerrillas trained by Recce Colonel Jan Breytenbach, later known as Bravo Group, was re-infiltrated back into Angola as part of South Africa ’s Task Force Zulu. It was this unit which would later form the genesis of South Africa ’s elite and much feared 32-Battalion. 32-Battalion became the backbone of all SADF operations launched across the Namibian border into a hostile Angola.

This book may be seen as a watershed contribution to the so-called Border War literature that, until now, has been dominated by journalists and writers with questionable motives.
