    So I have just finished reading this book - my soutie Afrikaans struggled a bit - but it is a good read, giving the frontline soldiers viewpoint. I was doing basics at 1 Special Service Battalion in Tempe, Bloemfontein in early 1988, and I had to spend a weekend at the 3 Mil hospital. I recall it being quite full of these troopies ex Angola recovering from malaria and injuries inflicted by the Cubans / FAPLA.

    For a really good independent overview of the whole Ops Modular, Hooper and Packer campaign, I highly recommend Fred Brigland's "The War for Africa".
