  • “All just grandiose plans and talk”: The destruction of Oswald
           Pirow’s reputation as Minister of Defence, 1940

    • Authors: F.A. Mouton
      Pages: 1 - 20
      Abstract: The popular perception of Oswald Pirow is that of an incompetent Minister of Defence, much derided for his bush carts pulled by oxen in the era of  the blitzkrieg doctrine of dive-bombers and tanks. However, this was not the perception of him in the years between 1933 and 1939. When Pirow  became Minister of Defence in 1933, the Union Defence Force was in a poor state. During the Great Depression between 1929 and 1933, austerity  measures had reduced the already small army to an insignificant force. In what has been described as a Pirowian renaissance he succeeded in  improving the preparedness of the Union Defence Force drastically. Ian van der Waag points out that with the outbreak of the Second World War,  South African defences were in a better state of preparation than during any other period in its peacetime history. This was a considerable  achievement, as Pirow had to deal with the vehement hostility of the National Party who viewed the Union Defence Force as a tool to serve British  imperialism. In addition, the average white voter was extremely reluctant to pay taxes to fund a standing army, while the rise of Nazi Germany  made it near impossible to secure modern armaments from Britain. What ultimately destroyed Pirow’s reputation as Minister of Defence was his  disastrous performance in the 1940 parliamentary session. His vindictive attacks on Jan Smuts made it possible for the premier to launch a  devastating counterattack, condemning him as a fraud and an incompetent windbag. In the process, Smuts succeeded in destroying Pirow’s  reputation as a highly regarded administrator and as a potential prime minister.

  • China’s Maritime Silk Road Initiative: A quest for sea power

    • Authors: Lungani Hlongwa
      Pages: 21 - 37
      Abstract: Much has been written about China’s deep ambitions as the country moves towards great power status. The Maritime Silk Road Initiative (MSRI) is  just one example of how China is flexing its muscles, and if history is to be believed, there is a strong correlation between maritime success and  national economic prosperity. The study, on which this article reports, examined China’s MSRI through the lens of sea power theory. It was argued  that the New Silk Road, which will most likely be backed by a modern blue-water navy, could represent a new era of maritime supremacy. However,  to see the MSRI as a pursuit of sea power requires an understanding of how maritime logistics functions as power. The seamless movement of  goods across the ocean is at the heart of the MSRI. Therefore, the research question that was pursued related to how maritime logistics functions as  a tool for power projection. Although sea power theory recognises merchant shipping as a core element of sea power, it was further argued that  scholarly work in critical logistics and mobility studies could enhance our understanding of logistical power. The study therefore aimed to  conceptualise the MSRI through the lens of sea power by highlighting maritime logistics as a strategic conduit for power projection.

  • The Smuts Government’s justification of the emergency regulations and
           the impact thereof on the Ossewa-Brandwag, 1939 to 1945

    • Authors: Anna La Grange
      Pages: 39 - 64
      Abstract: The Second World War was a dynamic time in the South African past – a time when war was not only fought against foreign enemies but also at  home within the Afrikanerdom. The metaphorical battle on the home front had two sides. The one was resistance against the Smuts government’s  war effort, and the second was the Smuts government’s actions to curb internal unrest. The main attempt to dampen the internal unrest manifested  itself in the form of various emergency regulations and war measures. These regulations and measures affected the Ossewa-Brandwag,  a dualistic organisation within the Afrikanerdom, which would eventually lead the resistance directly against the war effort. This article delves into the Smuts  government’s justification of the emergency regulations and analyses the impact thereof on the Ossewa-Brandwag.

  • Doing research on ‘sensitive topics’: Studying the
           Sweden–South Africa Arms Deal

    • Authors: Wayne Stephen Coetzee
      Pages: 65 - 85
      Abstract: The conventional arms trade is a sensitive topic that is often shrouded in secrecy. As with most aspects of so-called ‘high politics’, processes  connected to conventional arms trade habitually take place behind closed doors between a relatively small and tightly knit group of individuals.  Gaining access to such people is an enormous challenge for any researcher. Moreover, building rapport with key decision-makers takes a long time,  and it requires considerable effort and resolve. This article recapitulates the approach and method of a study done on conventional Swedish arms trade with South Africa. It provides insights into several substantive issues related to such research, in particular, aspects connected to elite  interviewing and research ethics. The bulk of the article covers matters related to research design, access to elites, the limitations associated with  elite interviewing, and the interview process that was adopted during fieldwork. The discussion on research ethics is closely, but not exclusively,  connected to elite interviewing, and here the article reflects on various ethical considerations as well as the harsh reality of researching sensitive  topics, such as conventional arms trade.

  • “This is war, isn’t it'” Fear and mortality from El Wak to El
           Alamein, 1940–1942

    • Authors: Karen Horn
      Pages: 87 - 109
      Abstract: During the Second World War, soldiers experienced fear and became aware of their mortality as a result of those factors that were unfamiliar to  them. Where memoirs or other narratives are available, it is possible to interpret soldiers’ expressions of fear and mortality and to determine the ways in  which they began to deal with these emotions in different war situations, whether in battle, in confronting disease or in handling difficult  environmental conditions. In this instance, the East African campaign and the campaign in North Africa form the background to the investigation into  soldiers’ experience of fear and mortality as expressed in their writings.

  • The role of change management in improving policy effectiveness in the

    • Authors: Jaco Pietersen, Pieter Steyn, Jan Meyer
      Pages: 111 - 137
      Abstract: Armed forces the world over have three primary functions – force development, force deployment and force employment. Defence policy plays a guiding role in all of these, but it is especially important in establishing the rationale for the creation of credible military deterrence. Usually, a  defence policy presupposes the development of armed forces that are effective at executing their mandate, a condition that is measurable in terms  of the discipline, skill and quality of the organisation. The study on which this article reports, used this concept to describe how change  management – especially by focusing on incorporating effective prioritisation – could enhance the current defence policy. A general analysis of  South African defence policy publications indicates that, indeed, the policymakers had thoroughly considered the effectiveness of the armed forces  when they wrote the White Paper on Defence of 1996 and the Defence Review of 1998. By 2006, the South African Army had interpreted national  defence policy and formulated a future strategy of its own very much in alignment with the ‘modern system’ approach of the original policy  publications.
