Excellent insight of what happened. Some of the leadership was just out of touch. I think there are many more that could have contributed.
Delivery on time and well packed.
Die boek is n Tour de Force. Dit is uiters boeiend. Dit gee ŉ tipe inhoud wat maklik lees en baie diepgaande detail gee wat ek selde by ander Grens Oorlog boeke kry. Welgedaan.
Baie dankie ek het vandag my kopie van jou boek ontvang. Hierdie inisiatief van jou het ook vir my antwoorde gegee op voorheen onbeantwoorde vrae. Dankie nogmaals
Operation Askari 1983/84 - War Journal
We all are familiar with the term “element of surprise”, well that is what (after reading this book) was for me – there were so many things that I (and I’m sure a lot off other Askari veterans) did not know about Ops Askari.The book cover some high and also some low moments. And sometimes you read a part and get a lum in your throat…
Page 36 – Mark Farrell about RSM Stone on the platform at Bloemfontein station
Page 155 – Ian Hedges about Capt du Buisson sitting on ratel 13B moving his head “side to side” to indicate to them not to go look at it.
Certain things now makes me wonder: The Evasive FAPLA Observer “Gato”, was he ever eliminated or did he just disappeared (page 104).
The R4 rifles that were found in a bunker at Cuvelai (page 158)
Thanks to the author Dawid Lotter and all the individuals that contributed to this “War Journal"
