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.

Written in the same gripping, novelistic style as its predecessor, Zulu Zulu Foxtrot recreates the experience of being in the heat of battle and delves more deeply into the psyche of the modern warrior.
