This is the story of an audacious, airborne assault, on 4 May 1978, on a SWAPO fortified base containing its military headquarters, logistical support, reserves and training facilities. The assault was supported by a very strong air strike by bombers and fighters as well as by air transport to drop the paratroopers into battle in one of the major, post World War para drops, 250kms deep behind enemy lines, and thus, of a necessity, the deployment of a veritable swarm of helicopters to extract the paratroopers back to safety, this execution of the whole intricate operation through a joint HQ deployed in the field. Unfortunately the subsequent uproar in the international media, based on allegations that this assault was a brutal attack on a refugee camp, did much to detract from the incredible victory the SADF had claimed for the paratroopers and the air force. Was it refugee camp as claimed by the Third World and the communist block, a SWAPO HQ and strategic military establishment as claimed by the RSA government and the SADF, or a mixture of both as claimed by the truth and reconciliation commission were the casualties mostly combatants or were they innocent civilians. This is the only personal account ever written by somebody on the SADF side who 'was actually there' and who was the commander of the paratroopers. It also brings to light much more than this brief outline, especially the dangerous nature of the whole enterprise through personal experiences, by paratroopers and air crews, and how and why it nearly became the most disastrous undertaking of the whole 'bush war' era through uncalled for meddling by an outsider who should not have been there.

It was seen over 160 years ago. It was denied and scoffed at by experienced leaders and elders. It was a young boys tale; a fabrication to bolster his status within his tribe. Only his family believed. Over the years through turmoil and cultural upheaval the truth became known. It is a story of confirmation, standing up for ones principles and beliefs. As the years passed the implications become much broader than the original vision. Who knows how history would have c hanged if the boys story was believed? The convictions and choices that Horse Killer, Eagle Who Broke His Wing, Buffalo Robe, Fire Lance, Maxwell Slade (Sun Caller), Randle and Chip, Paxton, Sally, Tully, Fredericks, and Captain Adkins, made at various times over a 160 year span are linked together to confirm the vision. Commitment, values, convictions, and beliefs, converge to exonerate one young boys tale. Everyone is in this book or someone you know. . .

Nestled into a scenic mountain valley at the junction of the Eagle River and Brush Creek, Eagle is a small mountain town that is often overshadowed by its famous ski resort neighbor, Vail. However, this thriving little mountain community claims a rich history of more than 100 years of spunk and fortitude. Eagle’s robust character started with the miners who came to the valley in the 1880s seeking gold and silver. Then came the farmers and ranchers, who recognized another type of wealth in the fertile soils and abundant water of the valley. As for that spunk, the townspeople of Eagle were tenacious enough to wage a 20-year war seeking county seat status and progressive enough to keep a small town growing and thriving for over a century.
