Dissapointing version of such a specialized unit and the Border War
9 June 2019 | by neilfranklin-93311See all my reviews

Having served in the SANDF and fortunate to have done national service with the Recces and saw their professional and fierce character including four months in the Caprivi, I was hoping to see this captured for once, well in a movie. It deserves to be properly shown and this movie didn't deliver for me. I even purchased the DVD to form part of my good collection of books on the same topic. Just couldn't get going with a story line.
