The link between terrorism and human trafficking
552 pages in paperback
Code Name One Alpha looks at human trafficking in much detail and the link with counter-terrorism.
I knew about human trafficking, from the news and have read articles, however, I did not understand the true scope of the problem.
As Angelique explains in Chapter 7, there are currently 40 to 43 million slaves in the world. That is close to double Australia’s population, half of that of Britain and France and about 90% of South Africa’s. Serious figures that I found difficult to comprehend. If you were to look at everyone walking around in a city like New York and imagine them in shackles... and yet you still wouldn’t get the true picture. I had the unhappy task to describe what is done to victims once they are grabbed, snatched, abducted.
There comes a time when a man must stop looking the other way and stand up and be counted. Once you read this book you have no more justifications in ignoring what is happening right now, everywhere. If you don’t want that burden, don’t read Code Name One Alpha.
The main theme is important as well, I describe how a NATO / US-based Special Forces Team will be hunted down in this theatre and destroyed when cornered and note I say “when” and not “if” cornered.
The enemy Special Forces Team stands no chance as far as I am concerned and why I say so is defined in the book. I will also explain how the South African Army’s armour battlegroups operate independently with their own infantry and supply columns.
As a cover, to explain the role of the armour in hunting Special Forces, we take a hard look at how CSAR (Combat Search and Rescue) is done here with armour formations, Special Forces, spies, multi-role air superiority fighters and whatever else is needed.
We then take a very interesting look at the history of the CSAR, especially in the Vietnam War. It is not a job for Special Forces as such but can be done by Special Forces if needed, but only when all other options have failed.
We deal with some tough realities in GMJ Books and the subjects can be difficult. However, we strive to make this information digestible, and sometimes, some information should not be kept secret. My intention is for a better world. Always.
Spymaster extraordinaire, Angelique Dawson and her team are in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa, conducting a training CSAR (Combat Search and Rescue) mission to liberate a shot down pilot on the run.
They are working with the Army’s armour battalions and Special Forces. However, she is at the same time manipulating affairs to include an exercise to find a simulated NATO Special Forces Team that may be operating in South Africa in the future. She wishes to test the most likely response to such a threat. To do so she is calling in fast-moving armour, attack helicopters, mechanised infantry, paratroopers, Special Forces and her own people to chase the team down.
Yet, this is not all, she is also planning a secret raid on a maternity clinic in a nearby city which is being used as a human trafficking centre. She has reports that it is also trading in human organs. As far as is known, she has no official permission for the raid, the traffickers are being protected by the highest levels of corruption.
That will not stop Angelique Dawson. Her bodyguard and later husband, Geoffrey Foxtrot and his friend, legendary Special Forces officer, Geelslang Peter Ndebele have their hands full to protect Angelique and work out the logistics, plan the raid and then execute it, all under the tactical command of Angelique’s female team leader, One Alpha.
If you wish to read about Covert and Special Forces Operations in sub-Saharan Africa, the GMJ Books are the place to start. You will learn about covert operations, Special Forces techniques and military history not known outside the select few.
Code Name One Alpha is the 34th book of the popular GMJ Series.
Code Name One Alpha (GMJ 34) Captivating! Thought Provoking!
This prolific writer of 34 novels, as of last count, uses the novel merely as a platform to add some very astute tactical and strategic commentary that is worthy of being read and heeded by the West. He is being read by the Chinese military and others.
Read these books and learn from an expert in his field:
That Special Forces are inappropriately used, wasted in fact, by most Western nations.
"US Special Forces, highly trained, are used wrongly, mostly, as walking bait and then having to get themselves out of trouble . . By doing this they are losing men at a rate that cannot be sustained. . . Special Forces are supposed to be surgical . . ". Read this book and learn how Russian Spetsnatz and South African Special Forces, among the highest rated in the world, do things in comparison.
That the US military is no longer highly rated by other nations.
"The word 'incompetence' and the Pentagon is practically indistinguishable in our world." Now, get this! He's not being insulting here because he has great regard for the US (his late wife was an American patriot) but he is an expert and speaks his mind. Being critical is his way of teaching. The reader from the West, especially the US, needs to read this with an open mind and see how our nations are perceived. Getting angry at his comments serves no purpose but to blind us to reality, and possibly eventual embarrassment, or worse, destruction. Read this book, and the others in the series, and learn from someone whose words command respect and consideration!
