Tom Cooper ´ 7 summary

Untry the size of Western Europe or the USA east of the Mississippi The book further traces the covert Rwandan military actions inside Zaire initially run under the guise of an insurgency by one of Zaire's ethnic minorities how ever deepening Rwandan operations inside Zaire were practically dictated by concentrations of Hutu refugees and how the insurgency led by Laurent Dsir Kabila who was installed by key Rwandan and Ugandan military and political figures developed into an organization that sought autonomy from the military and political dictates of Rwanda in turn delivering a direct reason for the Second Congo War which was fought from. The Great Lakes Holocaust is an accounting of the first Congo civil war its antecedents its actors and the underlying causes and how it progressedThe first part of the book breaks down a basic history of the Congo both are and post independence as well as the history of the Rwandan genocide which played a key role in driving the conflict It moves on to explaining who some of the many many direct and indirect combatants and the complex interweaving of their interests that resulted in them becoming involved in the warCooper does a commendable job of breaking down a dense and intermingled web of relationships and players into an understandable digestible narrative as much as a conflict like this makes sense He also does a good job of relating the story without slant He paints the conflict as one without any real heroes in a dispassionate manner Mobutu was a venial greedy man without a real interest in his country and Kigali's leaders as operating under perhaps an understandable fear but their actions in Congo were hardly defensible There are a number of good pictures as wellHe also presents the haphazard and ad hoc nature of how the war progressed and how the end results was anything but plannedThe only complaints I have about this book are minor There's some minor issues with grammar and word usage Cooper is Austrian so this is perhaps of an editors issues Some of the aviation discussion gets a little too technical which considering Cooper is an aviation enthusiast makes sense but may bore some readers The technical details don't intrude too heavily in the narrative howeverOverall this is another great primer from the AfricaWar series and an unintimidating introduction to an intimidating topic

This work the same author's Great Lakes Confrontation and Petter Abbott's Congo Wars from Osprey could give you an excellent view from a military perspective of the wars that began with the Tutsi holocaust in Rwanda to the First African Continental War This concrete volume covers only the end of the holocaust and the conuest by tiny Rwanda of the giant Zaire The book details the organization and euipment of the several armies and guerrillas involved including some orders of battle and the major campaigns fought from an operational perspective The only problem comes from the topic and not from the author the sources from this conflict are very scarce fragmentary and most had to be gathered through personal interviews made by the author with the personalities involved in the conflict So there are some lackings or guessings but in my view this work with Abbots's one are the best ones about this conflict from a military point of view
