"This is the detailed history of the elite policing unit operated by the South African forces on its Namibian border during the 1980s. In 1978, the counter insurgency war on the Angolan/SWA Namibian border was going badly for the South Africans. SWAPO was gaining the upper hand, so the South Africans decided to organise an elite commando-security unit based on the famed Rhodesian Selous Scouts. The unit was handed the Top Secret Project Koevoet ("crowbar") to provide operational intelligence by capturing & interrogating insurgents, but its commander came to realise that Namibia was different to the Rhodesian situation." ~ Goodreads.
