↠´ Shadows in the Sand: A Koevoet Tracker's Story of an Insurgency War ½ Download by ↠´ Sisingi Kamongo Excellent I am from the north of Namibia and lived through all the conflict years I found this book an excellent read, Shorty memory is fantastic I knew of Koevoet, but I did not know how effective they were Without these excellent trackers, they were simply the rock of Koevoet.
Well written and easy to read The book gives a very clear and accurate view of police life at the time The author is very honest in his views and opinions He clearly depicts insurgency war and also reveals the successful tactics used His sharing of knowledge about tracking is good Although he leaves out the bits that can only be explained with extensive experience The author s humility is always present as is often the case amongst those with real and extensive contact experience.
One of the best books I have read.
This book tells the story of a man who partook in many contacts with an elite force during a bloody bush war.
The matter of fact manner in which he narrates his tale only serves to enhance the feeling that Mr Kamongo wants to tell you about his experience and his respect for his peers Although there are elements of his personal grievances towards the powers that were , he doesn t try to look for redemption or self gratification.
Koevoet were infamous because they were so efficient, and the black trackers were instrumental to its success.
I have witnessed the talent of bush tracking for Game in the bush and I am always impressed with the information a game ranger learns from an impression in the sand.
These men deserve better, whether th It is refreshing to read a trackers version that confirms and supports the other versions Extreme respect to a very brave soldier and person.
My husband was in the South African army in the mid eighties He appreciated how skilled these native trackers were at their craft He liked this book very much and said it was interesting to read it from a tracker s perspective Highly recommended.
Die SWAPOLCOIN Einheiten bzw Koevoet werden heute nach weltweit herschendem Konsens zu Unrecht als ein Haufen von bluthungrigen, koruppten Polizisten betrachtet, ohne Anspruch auf Rente, Abfindung etc.
Wer sich ein differenziertes eigenes Bild machen m chte, f r den ist dieses Buch zu empfehlen.
This is a truly inspirational story and we loved it I can recommend this to anyone I found the story very interesting Delivery was also done in a satisfactory time frame.
