* The first-ever account of the bush war by a non-white member of the South African security forces This is the story of a Kavango tracker who served for six years with Koevoet ('Crowbar'), the elite South African Police anti-terrorist unit, during the South West African-Angolan bush war of the '80s. Most white team leaders lasted only 24 months; the black trackers walked the tracks for years. Sisingi Kamongo tells the story of the 50 or so firefights he was involved in; he survived five anti-personnel mine and POMZ explosions and an RPG rocket on his Casspir APC vehicle; he was wounded three times; he tells of the trackers looking for the shadows on the ground, facing ambush and AP mines at every turn; he tells of the art of tracking, where dust can tell time. A unique, previously untold perspective of the bush war, Kamongo's story is supported by two accounts from renowned Koevoet team leaders, Herman Grobler and Francois du Toit and becomes a powerful collection of experiences from South Africa's most successful counter-insurgency unit.
