    Flagg,

    Thanks for the reminder that Peter Stiff (Ex-BSAP) is still publishing via Galago; over many years he has published key works on the wars in Southern Africa. Have a peek:http://www.galago.co.za/index.htm

    Another publisher, UK-based, that specialises in those wars is on:http://www.30degreessouth.co.uk/cata...x.php/cPath/29

    No worries David!

    I know there has been a longstanding forum thread about Fireforce(and a heated discussion about it's applicability or lack of it in recent conflicts), but in some of Stiff's books(See you in November and Selous Scouts: Top Secret War) I reckon if you update them for the Bladerunner world we seem to be living, and focus on Title 50 over Title 10, it doesn't take a stretch of the imagination to see potential applicability to today and the near future with the right approach.

    It's probably already been happening, but I think the history of external operations in the Rhodesian/Zimbabwean Bush War provide the best available window into possibilities regarding recent/current/near future operations.

    Just my 0.02c

    There's also www.dandy.co.za

    Although Jonathan Pittaway's SAS and Selous Scouts books can now only be found on the secondary market at sometimes exceptionally high prices.

    I managed to secure copies and they are VERY good.
