Durand tells the story of his first years with Koevoet, a unit of the South African Police at Oshakati, from 1982 to 1983, during the Border War between the countries that are now Namibia and Angola. During this time, he killed many fighters in the South West African People's Organization People's Liberation Army of Namibia (SWAPO PLAN) who were fighting against the occupation of the South African Pretoria regime in Namibia.

Stop apologizing already.
You were defending innocent civilians from murderers. Armed communist terrorists intent on killing unarmed people.
There are some historical accounts somewhat off.
But it has been 30 years on.
Politicians, still betray the people, black and white.
There is an overkill on the F*** word, somewhat unnecessary on a book written 30 years after the war.
When it was getting interesting the book ends with what is supposed to be a poem! Is there a sequel?
Based on a partial chapter sent to me by Mr Durand prior to publication of Zulu Zulu Golf, I wrote a glowing 5-star review and allowed my photo and testimonial to be used on the cover. This was a significant error in judgement. When I received a copy of the book, I was dumbfounded; there was little I recognised from my five months as an embedded journalist with Koevoet. The period covered predates my time there by a few years, but I can categorically state that I neither saw nor heard anything that remotely resembled the sadism Mr Durand describes in this badly-written account. I immediately contacted Zebra Press to demand that, in the unlikely event the book enjoys a second print run, my contributions will not appear. I extend apologies to anyone who bought the book as the result of my initial review.

My husband loves this type of book, and has everything Arn Durand has written. If Koevoet interests you then it's worth buying.Published on 12 Dec. 2012 by A reviewer
