THE WAR FOR AFRICA: Twelve Months that Transformed a Continent

THE WAR FOR AFRICA: Twelve Months that Transformed a Continent
by Bridgland, Fred

1-213790

This classic account of a Cold War struggle and its momentous consequences for the participants and across the continent, is released in a new edition with a new preface and epilogue.

The story of the Cuban-South African war in Angola in 1987-88 through the eyes of the South Africans who fought in it. Beginning as a power struggle between two former liberation movements, the MPLA and UNITA, the Angolan Civil War became a Cold War struggle with involvement from the Soviet Union, Cuba, South Africa and the USA.

This book examines the height of the Cuban-South African fighting in Angola in 1987-88, when 3,000 South African soldiers and about 8,000 UNITA guerrilla fighters fought in alliance against the Cubans and the armed forces of the Marxist MPLA government, a force of over 50,000 men. Bridgland pieced together the course of the war, fought in one of the world's most remote and wild terrain, by interviewing the South Africans who fought it, and many of their accounts are woven into the narrative.
