Grensoorlog DVD Vol 1 (Afrikaans)
[vid25]Border War Vol 1
Episodes 1 - 13
Original Afrikaans language 26 part MNet series on the Bush War / Grensoorlog.
This 26 part documentary series is a powerful revelation of a secret war – the SOUTH AFRICAN BUSH WAR. The Bush war lasted from 1966 until 1989, making it one of Africa's longest conflicts. The Bush War was fought in Northern Namibia (former South West Africa), and also in Southern Angola - so-called 'Operational Area' or 'Border'.
For the first time ever – we reveal previously censored military footage which unashamedly tells the story of the true events of South Africa's Secret Bush War.
The viewer is taken on a journey that moves through a bloody November 1975 (Angolan Independence) and culminates into the Cuban military victory over South African Defence Force at Cuito Cuanavale (1988). GRENOORLOG offers new perspectives on the Border War through paradigms of diplomatic and military history and cultural studies.
Note: The narrative is told from a particular point of view that may be termed "politically correct". Certain footage may not correspond to the actual events being portrayed.
