Description:

Days of the Generals is based on interviews with the former generals of the South African Defence Force: Magnus Malan, Constand Viljoen, Jannie Geldenhuys, Georg Meiring, Hein du Toit and Chris Thirion. For the first time, they have opened up and told their side of the story about events in southern Africa from the 1970s to the present. Theirs is an explosive story, giving behind-the-scenes information about covert operations, secret meetings, strategic alliances and full-scale war.

The book looks in detail at South Africa's involvement in Angola, Namibia and Mozambique. It examines the armed struggle of the ANC and the state's war weapons, South Africa's nuclear programme and other "top secret" issues. This is essential reading for anyone interested in southern African politics and military history.
