Description

A quarter-century after the last shots were fired during the Border War, many misconceptions about South Africa’s longest war remains. Today, many people still wonder who had really won the war.

Since Willem Steenkamp's best-selling South Africa’s Border War was published in 1989 – shortly after the conflict ended – the rifle barrels have cooled, and the smoke and dust of the battlefield have settled.

During the war there was a veil of secrecy and denial drawn over the events, but new facts and information have come to light in the meantime.

This revised version of the classic puts the new facts on the table and gives an incisive look back into the war that millions of South Africans will never forget.
