Seal Team One

Dick Couch

This now-classic tale of SEAL combat action in Vietnam marked Dick Couch's debut as a novelist in 1990 and sold more than 100,000 copies. Hailed for its authenticity, it was the first novel about Navy SEALs to be written by one of their own. Couch, a SEAL platoon leader in the Mekong Delta from 1970 to 1971, includes gripping descriptions of dangerous operations that continue to attract a broad audience, with many bestselling authors calling his book a sensational story they can't put down. This new paperback edition features a foreword by the former head of the Naval Special Warfare Command.

At the Dragon's Gate

Charles Fenn

In the early days of World War II, a young Marine named Charles Fenn was recruited by the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) for undercover operations in the China-Burma-India theatre. Fenn knew exactly what it took to get the job done. His wartime exploits are the stuff of legend, but not even his OSS compatriots knew the full extent of his espionage activities. Fenn's skill as a spy is matched by his talent as a storyteller, and this witty, elegantly written account of his OSS days not only adds to the historical record, it makes for a compelling read.

1 Recce, volume 2

Alexander Strachan

1 Recce: Behind Enemy Lines takes the reader into the 'inner sanctum' of one of the sharpest, most versatile and deadliest specialist units in the former South African Defence Force. In their own words, Recce operators recount some of the life-threatening operations they conducted under great secrecy in Angola, Rhodesia and Mozambique during the late 1970s. Operators sweat in aircraft or in submarines deep below the ocean's surface. They brave crocodile-infested rivers in the dark of night. Recces place explosives in a train tunnel deep inside enemy territory and transform a large fuel storage facility in an Angolan port city into a fiery inferno. There were intense firefights, victories, but also losses . . . Those who were there give first-hand accounts of the tension, anticipation, fear, adrenalin, exhaustion, thirst and grief they experienced, but also of the humorous moments and the close bonds of friendship that were forged in situations of mortal danger. 1 Recce: Behind Enemy Lines is the award-winning author and former Recce Alexander Strachan's sequel to his bestseller 1 Recce: The Night Belongs to Us.

1 Recce, volume 2

Alexander Strachan

1 Recce: Agter vyandelike linies neem die leser tot in die Recces se «binnekamer». In hul eie woorde vertel Recce-operateurs van die lewensgevaarlike operasies wat hulle onder groot geheimhouding in die laat 1970's in Angola, Rhodesië en Mosambiek uitgevoer het. Operateurs sweet in vliegtuie of in duikbote diep onder die see. Hulle trotseer in die nagdonker riviere vol krokodille. Recces plaas springstof in 'n tonnel diep in vyandelike gebied en omskep 'n groot brandstofbergingsplek in 'n Angolese hawestad in 'n vlammehel. Daar was hewige vuurgevegte, oorwinnings, maar ook verliese . . . Dié wat daar was vertel van die spanning, afwagting, vrees, adrenalien, moegheid, dors en hartseer wat hulle beleef het, maar ook van die humoristiese momente en die hegte vriendskapsbande wat hulle gesmee het. 1 Recce: Agter vyandelike linies is Alexander Strachan, bekroonde skrywer en gewese Recce, se vervolg op sy topverkoper 1 Recce: Die nag behoort aan ons.

1 Recce

Alexander Strachan

1 Recce. Een van die skerpste, veelsydigste en dodelikste spesialiseenhede in die Suid-Afrikaanse Weermag. Dié manne – superfiks en bomenslik taai – het vir niks gestuit nie. Hulle het telkens hul lewe op die spel geplaas in geheime operasies, wat meestal in die nag, ver agter vyandelike linies uitgevoer is. Dekades lank is oor dié geheime sendings geswyg. Nou, vir die eerste keer, openbaar die Recces se legendariese bevelvoerders besonderhede oor verskeie polities sensitiewe operasies. Alexander Strachan, bekroonde skrywer en self ’n gewese Recce, vertel die volle verhaal van 1 Recce se ontstaan, geskiedenis en rol in die Bosoorlog. Ná jare van mites en geheimhouding gee dié boek ’n binneblik op die Recces en die werk wat hulle onsigbaar agter die skerms gedoen het.

1 Recce

Alexander Strachan

1 Recce. One of the sharpest, most versatile and deadliest specialist units in the South African Defence Force. These men – superfit and unbelievably tough – were dauntless. Time and again they put their lives on the line in covert operations that were mostly conducted under the cover of night, far behind enemy lines. For decades, the participants have kept silent about these secret missions. Now, for the first time, the Recces' legendary commanders reveal details about their many politically sensitive operations. The award-winning author Alexander Strachan, himself a former Recce, tells the full story of 1 Recce's formation, history and role in the Bush War. After years of myth and secrecy, this book provides an inside look at the Recces and the work they did invisibly behind the scenes.

В сетях шпионажа, или «Час крокодила»

А. А. Резванцев

Контрразведка и разведка дают неисчерпаемый материал для творчества писателей и исследователей. В этой книге – жестокая правда оперативной работы, которую надо делать чистыми руками. Из соображений конспирации изменены клички агентов, установочные данные фигурантов, смещены временные и пространственные рамки событий. Все остальное – правда.
