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.
   

Book review: Operation Dingo

Co-issued with a British publisher, “Operation Dingo” is the first of the “Africa@War” series of which four titles have now been released: three relate to operations – “Operation Dingo”, “France in Centrafrique”, and “Battle for Cassinga”; and, one focussing on a high-profile unit, the “Selous Scouts”.
   

Book review: France in Centrafrique

“France in Centrafrique” is the second in a new series on African conflict, “Africa@War”, and concentrates on French misadventures in the Central African Republic (CAR).
   

Book review: Battle for Cassinga

“Battle for Cassinga” is the third in a new series on African conflict, “Africa@War”, and examines South Africa's still-very controversial cross-border parachute raid in Angola in May 1978.
