Books by ex-conscripts detailing their experiences were few and far between in the era of the Border War while more than 500 000 white males were called up for what was described as "national service". While books like these are not exactly flooding the shelves of bookstores, they roll of the presses more regularly now. These works mostly deal with ex-conscript's that actively experienced the war in Namibia and Angola. Stand at ease is different : there is no "cordite and conflict".
