South African Armour of the Border War 1975 89 Book Description:

The Border War saw the biggest armoured battles in Africa since World War II. Starting as a counter-insurgency operation by the South African Defence Force (SADF) against the South West Africa People's Organisation, South Africa became embroiled in the complex Angolan Civil War, where they came up against enemies well supplied with equipment and armoured vehicles from the Soviet Union. With the aid of stunning illustrations and photographs, this study details the characteristics, capabilities and performance of the wide variety of armoured vehicles deployed by the SADF, from the Eland armoured car to the Ratel infantry combat vehicle and the Olifant tank. Designed for the unique conditions of the region, South Africa's armour was distinctive and innovative, and has influenced the design of counterinsurgency armoured vehicles around the world. Frequently requested by Osprey readers, and written by two renowned experts on armoured vehicles, this will appeal to all those interested in modern armour and the Cold War proxy wars.

History of Africa From 1945 to present Book Description:

This set of books on Africa was written specifically for use in a one-year general African history course. Volume 1 traces African history from the earliest man-apes to the beginning of the nineteenth century. Encompassed in this period are such broad subjects as the Neolithic revolution, Bantu migrations, Sudanic states, the rise of Islam, the beginnings of European Imperialism, and the slave trade. Volume 2 continues this survey of sub-Saharan Africa from 1800 through 1945. Major topics covered in some detail are European Imperialism and the scramble for Africa, European systems of rule, African nationalism, and the drive for independence. Volume 3 relates the nationalistic drive for an end to European political Imperialism and the subsequent difficult years of independence through the latter 1980s.

The Mitrokhin Archive II Book Description:

"When former KGB officer Vasili Mitrokhin defected to Britain he brought with him what the FBI described as 'the most complete and extensive intelligence ever received from any source'. The first resulting book, The Mitrokhin Archive: The KGB in Europe and the West, created a media storm. But it told only part of the story. Now The Mitrokhin Archive II: The KGB and the World reveals for the first time the full extent of the KGB's global penetration, exposing its operations in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East."--BOOK JACKET.
