A very good read and ideal for those that were involved and describes the experience well for those that were not I served from 1983 through to 1985 and spent 12 months on the Angolan border You don't have to agree or disagree with any of the views in this book it's fact I've read the book twice I find it therapeutic to read about people that had similar experiences to me because there was never any debriefing when returning to civilian life you just 'clared out' and that was that as if what you just did for 2 years was normal it wasn't

An Unpopular War from Afkak to bosbefok J H ThompsonI'm not sure how I came to find this book I'd been looking through South African authors on Kindle and for some reason this book came up as recommended and at the time it cost £199 it's now for sale at £8 odd I bought it because of the write up and I now need to say I really had no idea what was going on in South Africa Is this how the German's felt at the end of the Second World War That they really had no idea what was going on under their nosesJ H Thompson a freelance journalist married to Jeremy Mansfield had been mulling over writing this book for some years and according to the blurb her husband told her to stop procrastinating and gave her her first story This led to others giving their stories and then introduced her to even with storiesIt's written in the voice of each story teller and covers the army navy and air force At the beginning I was thinking Oh okay so this was what happened in basic training well lots of our boys benefitted from the discipline but then it moved onto their stories from the border and in particular the Angolan war and suddenly I was thinking Oh my God that's why none of them EVER discussed it or mentioned their times up thereI can now understand why some very liberal minded very kind and caring men returned to their families as complete racists It was a totally inhuman experience that they had to undergo in order to survive not just being shot at but to survive peer pressureI never realised how many young South African men lost their lives or were maimed in that pointless war I also didn't realise that the Russians and East Germans were involved and that their fighting power completely outshone anything that the South Africans possessed How ignorant was II'm glad I read this book I'm glad that J H Thompson had the courage to write it It makes sense of what happened to change the personalities of so many of the men who went away with sunny dispositions but who returned changed personalities
