Timeline and Daily Headlines

I have tried to compile a database of daily events that were significant to the War In Angola so that they could be viewed on a daily and chronological basis. This is still very much a Work in Progress which already contains thousands of entries, but it still has a long way to go before being all-comprehensive.

As far as I can I will link entries to relevant sections or pages on the War In Angola portal for those users that would like to read a little bit more. Again, your participation and contribution to the information contained herein are invaluable and much appreciated.

I regret that I could only open up the Daily Headlines to Public (non-registered) and Registered users. Only Registered users with Credits and PREMIUM MEMBERS are able to access the functionality to view the events by selected year and month...
