Koevoet - Afrikaans for Crowbar, tells of the origination and deployment of the South West African Police’s elite counter-insurgency capability during the South African Border War of 1978–1989. Drawing upon previously unpublished sources and from interviews with a number of key personalities, including former members of Koevoet, this volume, the first of two, documents the formation of Koevoet and its early operations up to 1984. Koevoet examines the background and context to the South West African conflict and details the early experiences of the South African Police in seeking to counter SWAPO/PLAN activities. It outlines the tasking assigned to Colonel Hans Dreyer of the South African Police to establish Ops K and to develop a counter-insurgency unit as part of the South West African Police response to the developing conflict, a unit that was to become both respected and feared and is, today, considered as one of the most effective counter-insurgency forces of modern times.
