Following the standard Concord publications format, a brief (2 page) overview of the conflict is given. The remainder of this book is made up of images of South African, Angolan, and various guerilla troops active throughout the conflict. As a pictorial record, excellent - as a book, what can you say for 2 pages of text. If you are interested in the subject matter and want to know what it all looked like, this publication is for you. Otherwise, there's not much point, really.

Excellent book! The photography speaks a thousand words to make up for lack of text! This book is not meant to be a blow-by-blow historical account of the war; there are other titles that cover that in detail. This is also an excellent book for uniform collectors to reference, or anybody wanting to visually comprehend the war in Angola.

This book is composed of hundreds of fine photos from the war in Angola during the 1970s and 1980s. Mr. Venter has written dozens of books on the African wars and these photos would make a great addition to anyone reading or researching the long war in Angola. Working with South African troops and members of UNITA Venter has collected a great series of images. Unfortunately the organization leaves something to be desired in places.

Rarely seen photos of the Angolan conflict. Unfortunately, most are in black and white, but there are some color plates too. A must for anyone interested in the wars in sub- Saharan Africa.
