Promotional Information

The first in-depth single-volume synthesis of the history of Umkhonto we Sizwe;Most of the material in the book is fresh from the archives - there is no alternative source in the secondary literature for most of the material that appears in these pages;This is a substantial book, at almost 600 pages, but the writing is concise and fast-paced;It captures the soldier's experience of what it is like to go on operations as an urban saboteur, or on campaign as a guerrilla fighter, because it is closely based on the perspective of participants;An honest account: defeats are defeats, victories are victories, and evidence rather than argument is offered in either case
