Synopsis

‘Both my guns are jammed. I’m dead meat, a sitting duck. All the insurgent has to do is pull the trigger of his RPG-7 rocket launcher. My heart surges, pumping pure adrenalin through my body and my mind.’ Arn Durand was a member of Koevoet, the most deadly fighting force involved in the Border War. Their task was to seek and destroy SWAPO PLAN insurgents. Zulu Zulu Foxtrot is an explosive account of Durand’s time with Koevoet during the mid-1980s, during which he went deeper into Angola than before. The book takes the reader on patrols through the bush and into ambushes and contacts with the enemy, which are described in nerve-shattering detail. Written in the same gripping, novelistic style as Durand’s previous book, Zulu Zulu Foxtrot recreates the experience of being in the heat of battle and delves more deeply into the psyche of the modern warrior.
