Format: Paperback
A comprehensive and fascinating book, a good primer on the elite of the SADF and SA Police Services. Besides the Recce Commandos, covers such units as the SA Marines, the Police "Hunter" units of the 60s and 70s, and the 44 Para Brigade and Pathfinders. Highly recommended.

As you may well guess it is an Osprey publication. Only the finest information is to be had by this firm. Excellent information on subject matter as well as photos and color plates. A must for historians and modelers of this subject.

4 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Morgan Leo Shnell on September 23, 2000
Format: Paperback
Not much has been written about the South African Defense Forces. Like Isreal, South Africa of the late cold war was surrounded and under siege. It cannot invade and occupy forgien land. So instead the SADF raised commando units, from Recce Commandos and the Parabats to 32nd Battalion, to strike at their enemies to great effect. I wish that a deffinative book about South African special forces could be written and published in America.
