D. Conradie


'Rifle and machinegun fire clattered in all directions; the deep-throated bark of the AA guns mingled with the thump of 90 mm guns and sullen explosions as Swapo dumps went up. Clouds of smoke and dust cloaked the groups of vehicles wheeling and circling around and through the patches of bush; the bodies of dead insurgents lay everywhere.'


South West African-Angolan; May 1978; first operation codenamed 'Reindeer'
