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.

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
