Koevoet was for most of us in other branches of the service a sinister and scary bunch of people who earned our grudging respect because they were so damned good at what they did. Books like this one introduce the reader to the reality of what went on in the unit, including the more humane things they did for the local pops. It's honest, very well written, and a tribute to the Koevoet men who to this day are looked upon by many as lawless psychopaths. War is not pretty. We need to know these things. Well done Gav, highly recommended.
Fast paced to the point account of Koevoet from a soldier on the ground.
Met Gavin in the ops area when he had just joined Koevoet. I will never forget that mop of blonde hair! A well written book which brought back many memories. Well done on presenting a thrilling and complete story, Gavin.
A book with nearly 300 pages packed with Angolan Bush War drama. This is a book that you won’t be able to put down as soon as you started with it. Gavin Manning is a master of the pen! His ability to translate Bush War conflict situations, and other Koevoet related stories, into words is commendable. This book is a must read for anybody interested in the Bush War in Namibia/Angola and Koevoet.
Excellent read. The book flows and will keep you glued, I could'nt put it down. One of the best Koevoet books I've read. The Utmost highest respect for these guys. Men of men.
