He is the author of 32 Battalion, The Terrible Ones and The Battle of Savate.

Reviews

This South African Defence Force unit called 32nd Battalion was formed in 1975 to combat Marxist MPLA and Cuban troops. Those had turned the Angloan civil war into one of the many proxy wars between east and west during the Cold War era. Author Piet Nortje served with this elite unit for ten years, rising through the ranks to eventually become Regimental Sergeant Major. Fearing the history of this top-secret unit would be lost, Nortje took it upon himself to write the story. Using newly declassified documents, official records and personal accounts, the author put together a very readable and detailed history. Generous use of maps and photos helps tell the story of "the best SADF fighting unit since the Second World War.--Books Plus, Women in the Arts
