Standard Edition

 

The airborne assault on the SWAPO base in the former mining town of Cassinga, on 4 May 1978, has been a controversial issue for over thirty years.

This is an opportunity to get a firsthand insight into the events of that day, brilliantly authored by Colonel Jan Breytenbach, who was also the commanding officer of the paratroopers who parachuted into the heavily defended SWAPO base.

 
 

This volume is well illustrated with maps, colour photographs and the original, top secret OPSOs, handwritten by Colonel Breytenbach days before the assault!

This book is a must for any military buff, and is offered at the published price of R 450.00 each.
