Koevoet is full of detail, flavour and character Hoopers informal style of writing brings the reader immediately into the story. Engrossing and educational it is hard to stop. --British Army Review
A thrilling exposé of modern military history, and of one of Africas bloodiest conflicts. --Dan Mills, author of the bestseller Sniper One: The Blistering True Story of a British Battle Group Under Siege
A valuable first-hand account of South African counter-insurgency operations in what was then South-West Africa and should be read by anyone interested in the southern African conflicts of the late twentieth century. --Journal of the Society for Army Historical Research
In assembling this work, Jim Hooper had the opportunity to re-connect with so many of the men who allowed this outsider to ride with them. All of which brought a new intensity and poignancy. (Paul Norman Books Monthly)See all Product description

Having missed the 1st edition print I was very glad to see Koevoet re-released 25 years later on.
Snapping up a copy on Amazon I was immediately transported back to the heat and conflict of Okovangoland in 1987.
It takes the astute observations of an outsider to expose a story like this with the complete objectivity it requires. It also took some balls to immerse himself into a proverbial nest of vipers - even more so getting it published.
I felt the story was an accurate and unbiased portrayal of the situation and true reflection of a complicated war not fully understood even by those fighting it.
If you were there this is a must read, if you were not, it will take you there and show you what it really was.
Thanks for an excellent read and a flood of memories Jim!
