I did my basic training at SAS Saldanha in July 1992. This was the second last National Service intake and there were only about 250 of us. We still went through all of the same experiences but probably not as intense as those before us. Nonetheless, it was a unique piece of history and I was glad to be part of it. This book rekindles some of those wonderful and also not too wonderful memories about the National Service journey. It is well worth a read if you were a part of it, or even if you weren't, it gives a great insight into this fascinating part of South Africa's history.

A real life short stories from former conscripts of the most effective army in the world. The book written with a lot of humor (where it applies..). The unobscured views of South African soldiers of the 1980s reveal a lot about that bygone and controversial era.

Good stories to recount, some are not the norm, but what was the norm. Some experiences were different. Thank you for writing this book, brought back many memories of that time.

My Dad, uncles and step-father did their conscription, and although none of them have never really spoken about their experiences, reading this book gave me a new-found respect for what they went through.

Not a true reflection of SADF National service and very dis-jointed. I did the full stint with the Parabats and struggled to compare my experiences with the characters in this book.
