Weaving together the experiences of Andre Scheepers and the first-hand accounts of other distinguished soldiers who fought during the Rhodesian War, this is a unique narrative of soldiers, the battles they fought, and the challenges and hardships they faced.

“It is a book that left me breathless, angered and saddened. It is a book about soldiers fighting a war they were not allowed to win, a war to save a country from itself. It is a book of immense bravery and sacrifice against incredible odds. It is a book that proves that some men are born to become warriors, other to become heroes. Only a select few are born to be both.” – Lt. Colonel Eeben Barlow (ex-32nd Battalion and Chairman of Executive Outcomes)

“Andre was the best of the best and the bravest of the brave.” – Capatin Darrell Watt (ex-SAS)

“If you have read Hannes Wessels’s A Handful of Hard Men  – among the best books to emerge on guerrilla warfare in Southern Africa in recent times, then We Dared to Win  will not disappoint. Working with Andre Scheepers – an outstanding SAS operator during the Rhodesian War – they have pulled together another reamarkable panoply of events that ultimately changed history throughout South Africa. Indeed, these events are gripping, incisive and very well done!” – Al J. Venter (author and war correspondent).
