About the Author

Hannes Wessels was born in Southern Rhodesia, but grew up in Umtali on the Mozambican border. He is part-owner of a lodge on the Zambezi and is keenly interested in all matters relating to African wildlife and conservation. He is the author of the highly-praised 'A Handful of Hard Men: The SAS and the Battle for Rhodesia' (Casemate 2015). After a childhood on a farm in the Rhodesian bush, Andre Scheepers joined the Rhodesian Light Infantry commandos in followed by the SAS in 1974. In the thick of the action during the Rhodesian Bush War he was wounded on 12 occasions. Turning down an opportunity to go into the British SAS, he elected instead to join a seminary and later became a priest. A true leader, beloved by his men, his calmness in extreme danger coupled with his ability to think his way out of tight corners made him the quintessential SAS officer.


It is held here for the meticulous descriptions of the activities of the Rhodesian troops in Mozambique, almost always victorious, sometimes very far from the border. * Africana Studia 07/02/2019 *
