Summary

Where dust can tell time ... for the first time, a Koevoet operative'¬"s story of the bush war This is the story of a Kavango tracker who served for six years with Koevoet ('¬ÜCrowbar'¬"), 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. It is a powerful, harrowing read; the tension is palpable.
