This is a collection of servicemen's anecdotes from their time doing national service in the SADF. The period covers the South African border war which is practically unknown to most of those outside of Southern Africa.

It was really interesting for me and helped me understand some of my dad's experiences a bit more. I would've liked to hear some of the experiences of the Afrikaner guys though.
