A greater share of honour

As a young Staff Sergeant in the Recces, Jack Greeff became one of the most decorated soldiers in the SADF.


Leading two-man reconnaissance patrols deep into enemy held territories and operating under the noses of the enemy, they collected vital strategic information on enemy movements and installations. Using the information gathered, he led raiding parties to the targets to execute what were probably the biggest and most daring acts of sabotage in recent military history.


The author also tells in detail how men, both black and white, trained together and fought a common enemy to create one of the most respected Special Forces units of its time.


"Their bravery in action was awesome, and their friendship and loyalty to me a stranger in their land, matched it." - Harry McAllion - author of Killing Zone. Former British Paras, Recce, 22 SAS, RUC.


"And though they are extraordinary proficient in the use of small arms and have conducted some of the hairiest operations in modern warfare, the Recces are far more valuable to the SADF as eyes and ears" Capt (Ret) Larry Bailey. US Navy SEAL. Soldier of Fortune June 1993.


This is a NEW (second) edition which contains numerous colour photos and has been extensively re-edited and updated.

"If we are marked to die, we are enough
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour." - William Shakespeare, Henry V
