Zulu Zulu Foxtrot by Arn Durand

Zulu Zulu Foxtrot by Arn Durand

Review by Stephen Timm:

"Durand tells of how, back in the early 1980s, he bribed a sergeant with two bottles of whisky to help him join other police members on a counterinsurgency training exercise, because he was bored with his job as a policeman at the law courts in Durban. After that, he never looked back.

'I liked living on the edge, I wanted to see how close I could come to death and survive it, that became like a drug.'

When he returned to the courts, he bribed the same sergeant with another two bottles of whisky to get sent to a counterinsurgency base in Namibia. There he helped investigate activities linked to Swapo and learned of the rapes, murders of opposition members and abduction of schoolchildren from eyewitnesses."

About the book:

This is the explosive follow-up to Zulu Zulu Golf, covering Arn Durand’s next few years in Koevoet, the most deadly fighting force involved in the Border War. 

After moving to the unit Zulu Foxtrot, Durand went deeper into Angola than before and was involved in more contacts with the enemy, which he describes in nerve-shattering detail. Balancing the action is a dramatic human story, as Durand faces the tragic death of his commander, Frans Conradie, one of the pioneers of Koevoet, who had become a mentor to him.
