More > remains a standard reference work to this day. This was a significant publishing event because it showed how the nature of the border war had changed irrevocably, from the occasional ad-hoc “hot pursuit” of SWAPO insurgents into a full-blown semi-conventional conflict. It heralded the shape of things to come, which was to culminate in the fierce later battles of 1988/89, when South Africans and UNITA slugged it out toe-to-toe with the Soviet-supported and led forces of the Angolan government (Cuban & Russian). Out of print for many years, “Borderstrike!” has long been a sought-after item among those interested in African wars. Now JustDone is able to publish a new edition. It contains all the material of the original, but adds new information, new chapters and many new postscripts and annotations.< Less

Every setback and victory, every act of courage and cowardice was recorded and... More > illustrated in the popular press. Nowhere was this more true than in Africa, where small wars came in three distinct types: campaigns of conquest or annexation; campaigns for the suppression of an insurrection, such as those in East and West Africa, where many campaigns began as simple expeditions and ended by bringing vast territories under British rule; and campaigns to avenge an insult, designed to impose control without annexing territory. Donald Featherstone, an acknowledged expert on colonial warfare, has written a vivid and accurate account of the small wars in Africa, drawing heavily on the letters and first-hand reports of those who were there. The book was described by the Journal of the Royal Artillery as 'wide ranging ... well researched and excellent...'< Less

The Guide to Durban, South Africa (the Sharks, the Most Beautiful Pier In the World, the White Rhino, the African Safari, the Hippos and the Zulu Dancers) from Pearl Escapes 2017 By Pearl Howie
eBook (ePub): $2.56
I used to get extremely burnt out and couldn’t even handle booking a hotel or flight when I did have time off. I thought “Wouldn’t it be awesome if someone would write a guide that... More > gave you one perfect escape; the hotel, spa, flight and restaurant.” So that’s what I did. My new series of mini-guides, although part of a much longer journey, is specifically designed to give you the precise information, the recipe you need to have the adventure – without getting bogged down with too many choices or details. Although there are several places to stay in this guide, I had to include them all, as each stay was either a trip of a lifetime or a necessary pit stop on long drives. Durban and the surrounding area is enough to make you fall in love with South Africa, with several amazing adventures to be had; go east for hippo, rhino, crocodiles and much, much more, go west to learn about sharks and the Zulu culture. You will not be disappointed, even if you don't like the look of the pier.< Less
