For the first time ever ­ we reveal previously censored military footage which unashamedly tells the story of the true events of South Africa's Bush War. This series packs a powerful punch providing an intimate, sometimes shocking, yet balanced glimpse of an important era in Africa's history.

GRENSOORLOG / BUSH WAR constitutes a literal unburdening for those whose voices have been silenced for so long. The viewer is taken on a journey that moves through a bloody November 1975 (Angolan Independence) and culminates with clashes at Cuito Cuanavale (1988). GRENSOORLOG / BUSH WAR offers new perspectives on the Bush War through paradigms of diplomatic and military history and cultural studies.

Those interviewed have challenged the boundaries, broken the silences and even tackled some of the taboos about the war. GRENSOORLOG / BUSH WAR firmly places the issues of TRUTH & RECONCILIATION back onto the Southern African political agenda and at the centre of popular imagination.

The series consists of a 2 volume 4 disc set.

Available in Afrikaans as GRENSOORLOG and BUSH WAR  in English. At checkout please indicate which language DVD set you wish to receive.

Wonderful eye opening education

I was on the border in the 1980s and although I received a daily intelligence briefing I never saw and understood the big picture until I viewed Grensoorlog. Had I known then what I know now I would have followed my colonel's recommendation and joined PF. In LOVING HONOUR of Recce Herman Carstens, 31, 32, 36 battalions, parabats etc and all our brothers that never came back. Baie Dankie ons is so trots op julle.
