1987. ’n Konvooi vegvoertuie is op pad na Angola om oorlog te maak. Vir die eerste keer is Suid-Afrikaanse tenks deel van die opmars om die Rooi Gevaar te stuit. Kommandant Leon Marais dra nie net die las as bevelvoerder nie, maar bots ook met sy direkte hoof. Dit is van die grootste veldslae met Suid-Afrikaanse tenks in Angola. Daar is soldate wat sterf en vermink word. Ander breek onder die spanning. Almal keer terug met wonde in hul gemoed. 'n Klinkende stuk van historiese fiksie.

Saray’s success at high altitude has helped change the narrative about who belongs on the mountains and whose stories are told. Saray’s story, which redefines common perceptions about what women are capable of doing and achieving, will inspire girls and women from all walks of life. In this fascinating memoir, she shares not only her incredible mountaineering feats, but also the lessons she learnt about life, perseverance and failing forward.
