The Nazis’ answer? Neutralise the RAF. Destroy its runways, destroy its aircraft on the ground, destroy its support networks and, most of all, kill its pilots. Vooral het tweede deel over de guerillaoorlog die hij onder bevel van Jan Smuts voerde, op weg en in de Kaapkolonie, geeft de hopeloze zaak van de Boeren goed weer. Uitsluitend de bijna 18e eeuwse bereidheid van Reitz en zijn maten om enorme ontberingen te ondergaan van het leven in het "velt", in de openlucht, met alleen een paard, een Mausergeweer en een dunne deken om onder te slapen, maakt dat de Boerenkommando's lange tijd konden blijven opereren en de Boeren weliswaar de militaire kant van de strijd verloren, maar aan de publicitaire kant punten scoorden. De oorlog werd zo verloren, de vrede en een 'eigen' Zuid Afrika uiteindelijk gewonnen. Het is dat wij weten hoe Zuid Afrika na de Tweede Wereldoorlog de Apartheid in is gegaan om het boek niet een veel mooier einde te geven. Containing 10 issues: The Flying Avengers, Upside-Down Ace, Battle of the Boffins, Winged Wolves, Danger Below, Czech Mate, Squadron Scramble, No Mercy, Spitfire Spirit, Death of a Cobra. Commando is an autobiography on the life of Johnny Ramone. He began writing the book in 1999 when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. In an interview with Billboard Magazine, Linda Ramone stated:Die geselstrant van die boek lees baie lekker. Dit is 'n eertsehandse beskrywing van die lewe van 'n berede guerilla-vegter deur die maer jare van die oorlog. Die patetiese wanhoop en lyding ruk mens aan die hart. a b c d e f g Moody, Nekesa Mumbi (18 January 2012). "Johnny Ramone's 'Commando' Autobiography To Be Released In April". Billboard Magazine . Retrieved 28 September 2013.

This book was written in the late 1960s and most of what is written still applies today. As the original was long out of print, the publisher approached Paul Dunstall who gave permission to reprint it and wrote a new forewordAs the Second World War progressed, commandos were deployed in the role of assault troops. They played a key role during the D-Day landings in June 1944, where they destroyed gun batteries and seized bridges and other targets. They performed a similar role in the fighting in Sicily and Italy in 1943-45. And during the operations in Burma in 1943-45, commandos served with the Chindits and in the amphibious landings in the Arakan. Commando in its long history has employed 140 writers, over 100 cover artists & 120 interior artists.
