Overview
 
Tom Cooper & Adrien Fontanellaz; Angolan and Cuban Forces at War 1975-1976. As of 1975, the decades long insurgency in Angola appeared to be short of its conclusion. However, with no less than three major insurgent movements fighting for supremacy, the war went on and then South Africa, USA, the Soviet Union, Zaire and Cuba became involved.

Based on extensive research with help of Angolan and Cuban sources, the War of Intervention in Angola is providing a unique insight precisely into the latter topic. It traces the failures of the US-supported FNLA, the growth and reorganization of the MPLA into a conventional army; deployment of Cuban military contingents, their capabilities and intentions and the performance and experiences of the MPLA and Cuban forces at war with South Africans and the third Angolan insurgent group, UNITA.

Illustrated with 110 photos, 10 maps, 12 color profiles; 72 pages.
