When first published in 1983, it sold out almost immediately. A reconstruction of the early “external operations” of the South West African/Namibian border war between 1978 and 1980, it... 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

More > higher ground, causing unrest between the snow leopards of the mountains and their intruding African cousins. Such conflict over several centuries has changed the snow leopards. Weakened by war, they no longer know how to love each other. Even the strongest form of love - that of a mother for her child - had become severely damaged, to the point where love has been pronounced extinct. This is the Longest Fall. The cats have fallen so far out of their faith that they’ve forgotten their love for each other and for Panthera. If they continue to fall, they may never be saved. That is why it is time for a new Pantheraseer to rise and teach the cats how to love again. But at the same time, she, too, must also learn how to feel and welcome love's warmth.< Less
