The truth about th war in Southern Africa 17. Juni 2003
Von Glenn Bolan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is one of the best books ever written on South Africa's military involvement in Southern Africa. It reveals more about the battles fought by South Africa's army, than most people are aware of. It has an indepth coverage from 1966 to 1989. Along with special sections on relevant military units like The South African "Recces" special forces, and 32 batalion both renown for their abilities in battle. There are also sections on the political decision making taking place, amongst various relevant parties. The numerous photos that can be seen throughout the book are very impressive in what they convey. In essence what it was like to be there. The South African Defence Force constantly fought against overwhelming odds, yet always rising to the task, and consistently coming out as winners.
I highly recommend this book for anymore who wants really know about, and understand the conflicts the SADF fought in, with courage and tenacity....

Outstanding Account of the war along the South West / Angolan border 8. März 2007
Von Kiwi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As the previous reviewer stated, this has got to be absolutely one of the best books written on South Africa's military involvement in South West Afrika (Namibia) and Angola. Most non-South Africans (and even many South African's these days) are unaware of just how intense and prolonged the fighting was, particularly in Angola against the Cubans (the South African's trashed them). This book tells the complete story, covering the period from 1966 to 1989. It covers the battles, the units (including special forces units like the Recces) as well as the politics.

The book is a large coffee-table format and going with the size, it includes an absolutely outstanding range of photos. I've got friends who were there, they've browsed through this book and said "ag nie manne, that was what it was like!" One of my friends was based in a military outpost photo'd in the book and he pointed out all the camp's features from the photo. It's that kind of book - if you get a chance to pick up a copy, grab it with both hands and your feet as well - it's worth it. And the author knows what he's talking about, he was there.

Remembering a forgotten war 6. Oktober 2011
Von Pablo Calahorra Gonzalez - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
For thiry-three years, South african forces waged a sometimes savage war in one of the most forgotten places of the world. Despite the general lack of interest from outside world,the war verged upon such "minor" subjects like the east-west conflict, the dominance over one of the richest countries in the world (a leading exporter of such trifles as gold and diamonds) and last but not least, the rightness of a country in separating its citizens by race... All this taking into account the colossal scope -geographically as well as chronologically- of this conflict.
Despite all these factors, the "south africa border war" is one of the most overlooked conflicts by the serious student of contemporary military history. Thankfully, this book comes to solve this problem. It is not the definitive book on the subject but it is a coureagous and articulated work which tries to give a general survey of the issue. In that aspect, mr. Steenkamp succeds reasonably well: the book has a reasonable structure and offers a wealth of graphic documentation, and despite the fact of the writer having fought in this war, it is a quite unprejudiced book which offers a balanced point of view about this protracted war. However more raw military data (please more TOEs and orders of battle) as well as a bibliography would have enriched the book.
At this respect, the writer (as well as those readers with an interest on the subject of the modern african wars) should have as a reference the excellent volume -regrettably written only in portuguese- about the colonial wars of this county in Africa:"Os anos da guerra colonial" by Aniceto Afonso and Carlos de Matos Gomes.
