The climax of the conflict portrayed in this history was the battle of Cuito Cuanavale, the largest military engagement on African soil since World War II. This book provides the firsthand, personal accounts of the clash leading up to Cuito Cuanavale for the first time in English, as told by the Soviet advisers to the Angolan army. Their experiences of the war as well as their views and assessment of their South African enemies and Cuban and Angolan allies will not only surprise and fascinate readers, but will also offer new insights into the war itself.
