“This is the story of war and conservation, a drama enacted in a theatre in the southwestern corner of Africa.” 

Author Jan Breytenbach, a legend in military circles, and a founding member of South African Special Forces ‒ the Recces ‒ describes how he discovered that Military Intelligence was involved in illegal wildlife trade with Jonas Savimbi. To his horror and astonishment, senior officers were also using the MI created ivory-smuggling routes for their own corrupt ends. A must-read on a little known topic of the South African Border War, Angolan Civil War, and the de facto genocide of southern Africa's Big Five, particularly the elephant.
