This book traces an extraordinary career through nearly four decades of military aviation. Dick Lord, well known as an aviation raconteur, tells a tale of military flying at its very best. He covers, in amusing detail, the life of a carrier pilot in both the Royal Naval Fleet Air Arm and the United States Navy. His unusual career then led to combat in Southern Africa as a Mirage F1 squadron commander. He later rose to the rank of brigadier-general in the South African Air Force.

In this companion volume to the highly successful Field Guide to the Battlefields of South Africa , the pivotal sieges that characterised the Cape Frontier, Anglo-Zulu, Basotho and Anglo-Boer wars are brought together in one volume. Accounts of 17 sieges over the last two centuries explore in detail the historical context in which they occurred, the day-to-day military actions that sustained the investments and the conditions both soldiers and civilians faced while defending their territory against a hostile force.

The siege descriptions are animated by maps where possible, and a variety of information boxes and human-interest stories, gleaned mainly from diaries, letters and eye-witness accounts; long-form features focus on the practical aspects of siege warfare, such as artillery, medicine, food, and the psychological effects of besiegement. The book also provides practical information for visitors who wish to explore these historical sites.

A fascinating read that will appeal to anyone interested in the volatile history of the country - armchair historians and travellers alike.

A former South African Air Force pilot who saw action throughout the region from the 1970s, Neall Ellis is the best-known mercenary combat aviator alive. Apart from flying Alouette helicopter gunships in Angola, he has fought in the Balkan War (for Islamic forces), flown Mi-8s for Executive Outcomes, and thereafter an Mi-8 fondly dubbed“Bokkie” for Colonel Tim Spicer in Sierra Leone. For the past two years, as a “civilian contractor,” Ellis has been flying helicopter support missions in Afghanistan, where, he reckons, he has had more close shaves than in his entire previous four-decade career; twice he turned the enemy back from the gates of Freetown, effectively preventing the rebels from overrunning Sierra Leone's capital. Known as Nellis to his friends, he was also the first mercenary to work hand-in-glove with British ground and air assets in a modern guerrilla war. This book describes the full career of this storied aerial warrior, from the bush and jungles of Africa to the forests of the Balkans and the merciless mountains of today's Afghanistan. Along the way the reader encounters a multi-ethnic array of enemies ranging from ideological to cold-blooded to pure evil, as well as well as examples of incredible heroism for hire.

Steve Joubert had always wanted to be a pilot and the only way he could afford to do so, was to join the South African Air Force in the late 1970s. As an adventurous young man with a wicked sense of humour, he tells of the many amusing escapades he had as a trainee pilot. But soon he is sent to fight in the Border War in northern Namibia (then South West Africa) where he is exposed to the carnage
of war. The pilots of the Alouette helicopters were witness to some of the worst scenes of the Border War. Often, they were the first to arrive after a deadly landmine accident. In the fiercest battles their gunships regularly supplied life-saving air cover to troops on the ground.

When Neil Reynolds was first asked whether he'd like to work in Iraq as a private military contractor, he didn't even know where it was on the map. But he would quickly learn the lay of the land and what it entails working in one of the world's most violent conflict zones. When he left for the Middle East at the end of 2003, he was part of one of the first groups of South Africans to start private military security companies in Iraq.

In this honest and often humorous account he tells of all the everyday and major challenges they had to face: from finding a braai-able chop, a safe hotel to stay in and buying guns on the black market and dodging bullets on several hair-raising protection missions. He also tells the story of four South African colleagues who were kidnapped and killed in Baghdad in 2006.

From Cabinda in Angola to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania 4 Reconnaissance Regiment conducted numerous clandestine seaborne raids during the Border War. They attacked strategic targets such as oil facilities, transport infrastructure and even Russian ships. All the while 4 Recce's existence and capability was largely kept secret, even within the South African Defence Force.

With unparalleled access to previously top secret documents, 50 operations undertaken by 4 Recce, other Special Forces units and the South African Navy are described. The daunting Operation Kerslig (1981), in which an operator died in a raid on a Luanda oil refinery and others were injured, is retold in spine-tingling detail.

The book reveals the versatility and effectiveness of this elite unit and also tells of both the successes and failures of its actions. Sometimes missions go wrong, as in Operation Argon (1985) when Captain Wynand Du Toit was captured.

This fascinating work will enthrall anyone with an interest in Special Forces operations. Iron Fist from the Sea takes you right to the raging surf, to the adrenalin and fear that is seaborne raiding.

Op 11 Februarie 2014 woon Wynand en Frances du Toit die 25ste herdenkingsvieringe van die ondertekening
van die Brazzaville Protokol by. President Denis Sassou N'Guesso van die Republiek van die
Kongo hang die Nasionale Meriete Order van die Kongo om Wynand se nek.
Wat hy daar beleef en besef, laat die laaste stukke van die legkaart in plek val, dertig jaar na sy gevangeneming
in Cabinda, Angola.
Lees hier in sy eie woorde van sy stryd om te oorleef, om weer 'n plek in die samelewing in te neem. Hoe
hy en talle ander veteraan-soldate misbruik, misken, en verstoot is. Vergete slagoffers van die destydse
Kodesa-samesprekings, lewe baie oud-soldate in gebrek en armoede, hul onvermoë om in die nuwe
Suid-Afrika aan te pas 'n bewys van die ou regering se kille hantering van die eens magtigste weermag
in Afrika.
Die politieke poppe-meesters trek op 10 Mei 1994 die Josefskleed oor die donker put waarin sy eens getroue soldate en landsburgers
steeds verkeer. Die politieke en militêre vuilspel gerieflik verswyg in die gemak van hul aftree-pakette.
Dit bly 'n ope vraag: was dit nie juis diegene wat bereid was om die grense van lojaliteite oor te steek wat die werklike helde was en die
land van 'n bloedige burgeroorlog gered het nie?

During May 1985, a South African Special Forces Team consisting out of nine operators, landed on a
beach in the oil-rich province of Cabinda in Angola. Their target was the six massive oil-storage tanks.
The subsequent fire fight led to the death of two soldiers and the capture of captain Wynand du Toit. This
meant only one thing: Betrayal!
Read in his own words of this harrowing experience and the pain of his incarceration, the happenings
behind the scenes and the realization that this was just an opening move that would eventually mislead
the South African population to end the war in Angola and the independence of Namibia.
Judas Goat promised to take the reader on a unbelievable journey of hardship, suffering and betrayal.
This eventually results in Wynand du Toit becoming a household name in South Africa.

Judasbok beloof om die leser op 'n ongelooflik intense erÂ-varing te neem deur te kyk na wat agter die skerms gebeur het en wat aanleiding daartoe gegee het dat Wynand du Toit 'n huishoudelike naam in Suid-Afrika geword het.

Lees in sy eie woorde die gebeure van daardie nag en die diepgaande nagmerrie van sy gevangeneskap, die sameswerings en die uiteinÂ-delike afleiding dat die hele operasie slegs 'n openingÂ-skuif was wat uiteindelik die Suid-Afrikaanse volk moes mislei tot oorgawe in Angola en die onafhanklikheid van Namibië.

Over the years, much has been written about individuals and the forces and their operations in what became commonly known as South Africa's Border War, or Grens Oorlog, but never before has the human spirit of this 23-year-old conflict been so graphically and unashamedly captured and chronicled as in this book.

Equally unique, was the exclusive use of social media to invite and encourage individuals to tell their personal stories, without apology or recrimination, and so provide an indelible oral history of the war. Over a period of three years, 21,000 of them spoke: national service troopies, permanent force officers, aviators, aircrew, medics, submariners and padres.

Erstwhile antagonists also stepped up to the plate, placing their own personal first-hand experiences amongst those of their enemies of yesterday: Russians, Cubans, Angolans and SWAPO.

The story is further enriched by the inclusion of a rich plethora of hitherto unseen 'unofficial' photographs of stolen memories, in a war situation where the taking of any such photographs was strictly prohibited.

Veterans unabashedly wear their hearts on their sleeves, speaking of the psychological impact of untold tragedy and grief; of bravery and unmitigated fear; of shenanigans and mischievous escapades to relieve the pressures of war; of miracles and fate; and of camaraderie.

The Angolan war has been described as the bloodiest colonial insurgency in the history of Africa south of the Sahara. But it was to become a conflict that Portugal would lose not on the battlefield, but in the hearts of its own citizens. After a thirteen-year war of attrition in Angola, and facing increasing setbacks in two of its other war-torn territories, an enervated Portugal with its weary armed forces would deal the final blow to itself.

Op 3 Oktober 1987 het Charlie-eskadron - die ystervuis van 61 Gemeganiseerde Bataljongroep - die kritieke geveg tussen die Suid-Afrikaanse Weermag en die Angolese magte op die Lombarivier in die suide van Angola gelei. Dié boek plaas die leser in die midde van die groep jong dienspligtiges wat na die Grensoorlog weggevoer is om hierdie geveg te gaan voer.
Op die Lomba het hulle nie net te staan gekom teen 'n Angolese mag met 'n getalsoorwig en beter wapentuig nie, maar ook teen 'n terrein wat so dig bebos was dat hul sig en beweging aansienlik ingeperk is. Die SAW se taktiese doktrine het duidelik gestel dat tenks teen tenks aangewend moes word. Tog moes die dienspligtiges die Angolese tenks aanvat in pantservoertuie met minder kragtige kanonne en dun pantser wat nie veel meer as gewone geweervuur kon afweer nie. Steeds is 47 Brigade van die Angolese magte amper uitgewis tydens die geveg op die Lomba. Scholtz se beskrywing van hierdie David teen Goliath geveg neem die leser na die hart van die aksie.
Danksy onderhoude met veterane en dagboekinskrywings dra hierdie eerlike, intense hervertelling die volle drama van die geveg oor. Dit is ook 'n diep menslike verhaal oor hoe individue reageer in die aangesig van die dood.
