Memoir, War

This is a memoir translated from the Afrikaans best selling "Uiters Geheim", by Kobus de Villiers, a South African engineer who worked on top secret projects. He recounts episodes in his life with a wry sense of humour, and older readers will recognize many of the references to childhood and growing up in the South Africa of that era.

"His accounts of what happened are hilarious. After 1994 he joined overseas companies that required his expertise. Through the years he made a major contribution to the development of new technology, but due to the strictly top secret nature of his work, his family and friends never knew where he was and what he was doing.

Now retired and living in Canada, he reflects on his various postings and projects and all the funny adventures along the way from a dusty Free State town to living in Leonid Brezhnev’s dacha in Russia, meeting the great grandson of Henry Ford, singing “Sarie Marais” at a karaoke evening in Japan and eating a Philly-steak at a table once occupied by Bill Clinton, among many interesting experiences, to finally living in Vancouver with his French wife, and still tinkering in his garage.
