A National Serviceman’s Story
by Tim Ramsden
Tim Ramsden served his time as a National Serviceman in the SADF’s elite Mechanised Battalions and tells his story from his tough training days to the SADF’s final confrontation with Cuban armoured forces during the last days of the border war before a peace deal with Angola and Cuba was finalised in New York in December 1988.
Book includes the travails of three of the author’s National Service comrades who were captured and imprisoned in Mozambique. The author also details his trip to the Namibian/Angolan border many years later to visit people no longer his enemies.
Of interest to former national servicemen and those interested in the South African Border War..
