SPECIAL FORCES provides a comprehensive account of the origins and history of this famous group as told by the men on the ground.

True to the nature of Special Forces, the South African Recces started small but had a big impact. This iconic group went on to gain international renown as one of the world’s finest, focusing on counter-insurgency, strategic reconnaissance, sabotage and direct action. Until now little has been known about the South African contribution to the history of Special Forces and Special Operations. Now at last the men themselves tell their own stories of that elite unit from its origin in the 1970s to the present day.
