Imagine the most tenacious and skilled soldiers in the
business fighting in the most brutal of bush wars. Gavin
Manning was there, from 1982–88, on the border of
northern Namibia and southern Angola – right in the
thick of it.
The ultra-covert South African special forces unit known as
Koevoet (or Special OPS-K) has been shrouded in mystery for three
decades. This book will blow the lid off the box and set all the misconceptions
Manning gives a gripping account of tracking the Soviet-backed
terrorists, often right on their heels, using elite skills and technology.
The finely honed instincts and supreme ability of the Koevoet operators
earned them the reputation of the best counter-insurgency
and tracking unit that Africa and the world had ever seen.
Dead Men Running is a vital book about the Angolan bush war
that finally tells the truth. But it is also Manning’s own story – how he
realized his dream of becoming part of Koevoet, the brotherhood he
inherited, and the friends he made who lost their lives.
Manning is a skillful writer who will sweep you up into the action
with the precision of accurate gunfire. Please click here to ask a question
