A faraway war…

A clash of ideologies…

And some of the biggest battles fought on African soil since World War Two.

For twenty-three years, five western nations, members of the Soviet bloc and two superpowers were locked into a war never formally declared. The South African Defence Force pitted against communist Angolans, SWAPO, Cubans, and Russians.

It all began in 1966. Once the Draft started, every able-bodied white South African male was called up for service. They were forced to adapt, both physically and emotionally. It was a call that most answered.

This was the Cold War played out on a third-world battleground. Where the skies of Angola were once the most hostile airspace in the world. The rules of engagement in this war were murky, complicated and secretive and who won it, remains fiercely contested even to this day.

Many lost their lives. Emotional scars and lasting vivid memories remain.

ANGOLA - THE WAR produced by Peter Lamberti.

Duration: 1 hour 12 minutes

The War in Angola

Excellent coverage of what actually happened in a war that was shrouded in secrecy. One omission in my opinion is the lack of casualty figures.
