Cuba and Africa, 1959–1994, Edited by Adrien Delmas, Giulia Bonacci, Kali Argyriadis

This collection provides an understanding and an explanation of Cuba’s interaction with Africa between 1959 and 1994, beginning with the Cuban Revolution and ending with South Africa’s democratic election. Excitingly, these essays reflect understandings of the Cuba–African nexus from a range of disciplinary nodes. This is interdisciplinary scholarship in a real and symbolic way – and at its most interesting too.

Boys at War. Diary of SA’s Operation Savannah 1975 – 1976, by Paul Els

This resulted from the communist-inspired coup d’état in Portugal and the Soviet Union’s attempt, using Cuban surrogate forces, to annex Angola and to threaten South Africa’s national security. Teenaged boys doing their national service played a major role in this conflict. They and their young commanders, emerging vict...

Option for the Sword: N.A. by Pedro Marangoni, Translated by Robert Anderson

An anti communist fighter involved in the Portuguese wars to save Angola and Mozambique from communist takeover in the 1970's, Rhodesia Special Branch, French and Spanish Foreign Legion,and lots of action.
At the beginning of the 1970's, we had two clear and opposing policy options. I chose the one that best represented the way of life I inherited from my ancestors, who helped, with the freedom of democracy, to build a Civilization that gave everyone the opportunity to work, not the forced ...

Onvertelde verhale van SAKK soldate, deur William Sam

In my eerste boek getiteld, My loopbaan as bruin soldaat, praat ek van die oorlog in Ovomboland wat jo agtervolg soos jou skaduwee, oral waar jy is, is die stories ook. Maar ek het gedink dis net met my wat dit gebeur het, tot ek die boek getitel: Onvertelde verhale van SAKK soldate begin skryf het en ontdek dat dit presies dieselfde met diegene is wat ek mee onderhoude gevoer het. Daar was tye dat ons saam gehuil het, saam gelag het maar ook tye dat daar net n doodste stilte tussen ons was. Bai...

Buffalo Battalion: South Africa's 32 Battalion - A Tale of Sacrifice, by LJ Bothma

By August 1974 the Portuguese had all but abandoned Angola, its erstwhile colony, and there was a fear in both the Intelligence services of South Africa and America that the country was likely to fall the hands of the MPLA, generally regarded as a Soviet surrogate. It was that fear that triggered the training by South Africa of guerrilla groups opposed to MPLA. One group of FNLA guerrillas trained by Recce Colonel Jan Breytenbach, later known as Bravo Group, was re-infiltrated back into Angola a...

Move The Border: A History of the Greatest Battles of the Angolan Border War 1966-1989, by Marius Scheepers

An account which strives to place the war which South Africa fought in Angola in a historically meaningful perspective. Although the conflict initially centered on the opposing agendas of the SADF and People’s Liberation Army of Namibia of SWAPO, it was to escalate and take on an international Cold War character as Angolan, Cuban, and Soviet protagonists appeared on the stage of the unfolding drama. Apart from the political resolution which was subsequently achieved in South Africa, the war repr...

Die SAW en Cuito Cuanavale: 'n Taktiese en Strategiese Analise, deur Leopold Scholtz

Dit gebeur dikwels dat ’n skietoorlog deur ’n tweede oorlog gevolg word. Dié oorlog word nie met ammunisie of kartetse gevoer of met tenks en bomwerpers nie, maar met woorde. Die oorlog word as ’t ware op papier oorgeveg.”
In 1987–1988 was die stowwerige Angolese dorpie Cuito Cuanavale die toneel van die laaste gevegte van die Grensoorlog. Sedertdien is dit die fokuspunt van ’n openbare debat oor wie eintlik hierdie oorlog gewen het.
Die leierskorps van die Suid-Afrikaanse Weermag (SA...

War of Intervention in Angola - Volume 2: Angolan and Cuban Forces at War, 1976-1983, by Adrien Fontanellaz

As of mid-1976, the civil war in Angola was seemingly decided: supported by a large contingent of Cuban forces, the MPLA established itself in power in Luanda. Its native competitors, the US-French-Zaire-supported FNLA, and UNITA, supported by China and South Africa, were in tatters. The French and Zaire-supported FLEC an armed movement for the independence of the oil-rich Cabinda enclave was in disarray. The last few of their surviving units were either driven ...
