    "Good quality buy ..." I haven't had time to absorb the contents of my book yet but I must say that the quality of the medium and the speedy delivery already make this a worthwhile buy for me.

    "Over the BORDER, .....Again!!" I own and have the 1st and 2nd editions (both long out of print, very expensive and very hard to find!) and can vouch that this is an incredible book! It will easy list in the top 10 “Bush War” book list, but seeing that most are out of print this book quickly moves to the top of the list. I cannot wait to get my updated copy and look forward to all the new surprises between the covers of this book. Simply a “spot-on” book, a most own! cheers, Troy

    "It's spot on" I was in the bush and in the pictures. I saw the sights and heard the sounds. This book is no bullshit. It's an accurate account of the history... very accurate. I also have an original hard copy. You can quote from it anytime! Take my word for it.

    "Borderstrike! South Africa into Angola 1975 - 1980" Having served in SWA during the period under review, I have a particular affinity to this campaign. I also have a particular respect for this author who more than any other IMHO has opened up the curtain of political and military secrecy that has often surrounded this bitter and protracted war. This edition has been vastly upgraded and re-typeset by justdone publications, making for much easier reading. The production values are high and the addition of various appendices makes for a better understanding of the conflict by later generations. I appreciated the maps of the various battles, which again are a boon for those who were not on the ground at the time. My only gripe is that there was not a small appendix of the insignia of the many units who took part nor was there an index. I was however particularly impressed with the order of the book and its warts and all descriptions from the participants of the many, often... More > vicious, engagements. As in all wars betrayal by politicians on both sides is skilfully documented and again IMHO honestly portrayed. Bearing in mind this is a web book one has to forgive minor irritations caused by a few low quality images but the rest certainly makes up for these. It is without a doubt well worth selling price and is simply indispensable for anyone who is remotely interested in this important Cold War conflict. The ordering process was flawless, in this instance I ordered a printed copy, with the item arriving very well packed within 5 days of order. Printing is well executed on plain paper in A4 format. Binding is glued plasticard and while it could be improved upon it in no way detracts from the quality of the book. Now all we need is a similar publication covering the years to 1989!

    "Re: It's spot on" Hi BBJ, Thank you for the review. You have of course made me curious when you say "in the pictures"?? How about contacting me privately at john@justdone.co.za ?
