The Buffalo Soldiers – The Story of South Africa’s 32 Battalion 1975 – 1993

R1,734.30

Because of the secrecy surrounding it, 32 Battalion became not only one of the finest fighting units in the South African Army, it also became the most controversial.

The South African Border War is one of the least studied, most poorly understood conflicts of the 20th century. The “Bush War”, as it is known in South Africa, spanned the spectrum of warfare from the lowest intensity fighting, to high technology tank and aerial combat. Both sides pitted the most advanced weaponry of the age against each other, all while under some of the harshest conditions on the planet.

The war saw the engagement of South African, Namibian, Angolan, Cuban, Soviet, Chinese and even American forces in an array of operations and offensives.
