AJ BROOKS matriculated, surprisingly, in 1978 and was called up in 1979 to 14th Field Regiment in Potchefstroom for his two years’ compulsory national service. He was transferred to the School of Artillery where he became an instructor as he felt he’d rather shout at people than be shouted at. It was here that his interest in guns and vintage artillery pieces was nurtured. He later served with 7th Medium Regiment for his first Citizen Force, or territorial, duties. In 1993 AJ was transferred to the Transvaal Horse Artillery where he was promoted to the rank of warrant officer and BSM of 9th Battery. Further tours of duty to the Army Battle School and Potchefstroom ensued before his resignation in 2003. AJ is married to Brenda and has two children. He lives in Johannesburg. His first book, The Border, was published in 2007 and is being made into a major feature film.

I couldn't put this book down. It's a great war story. It's worth a read especially for ex South African national servicemen. There must be so many other similar stories waiting to be written. Can anyone tell me whether the movie has been made yet?
