Shadows in the Sand

Shadows in the Sand

By Kamongo, Sisingi and Bezuidenhout, Leon

 

A Koevoet tracker’s story of an insurgency war

 

Where dust can tell time ... for the first time, a Koevoet operative’s story of the bush war

 

R250.00

 

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 two years; 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.

 

Kamongo’s story is supported by two accounts from renowned Koevoet team leaders, Herman Grobler and Francois du Toit - a powerful collection of experiences from South Africa’s most successful counter-insurgency unit

  • The first-ever account of the bush war by a non-white member of the South African security forces
  • A unique, previously untold perspective of the bush war, by an on-the-ground tracker
  • A powerful, harrowing read; the tension is palpable
