Book Review: Bush War

Nearly all accounts of the Battle of Cuito Cuanavale, in English, to date, are one-sided South African accounts. Shubin and Tokarev’s Bush War – The road to Cuito Cuanavale – Soviet soldiers’ accounts of the Angolan war is still one-sided but provides a Soviet view through the diaries and memories of a small group of advisors assigned to the Angolan Armed Forces (FAPLA) over the period 1986-1988. Most were interpreters, placing them in an unique position to understand and follow events, literally at the other end of the G5 muzzle.
