in Mozambique. – Highly Recommended

The Cold War was often very hot in the proxy wars fought between the Soviets and 
the US. In Mozambique it killed more than one million people, made countless 
numbers homeless and left the country in ruins.

What made the Mozambican war so protracted and damaging was that it was not 
only a proxy conflict between the Soviets and the US, but also a war between the 
Marxists and apartheid.  Rhodesia was fighting against the Zimbarbwean guerillas 
and they were operating out of Mozambique. That meant that Rhodesia and South 
Africa were also backing Renamo to attack the Zimbarbwean guerillas. It was a 
complex nasty war, as with other countries in Africa, it came at a time when every 
effort was really needed to improve agriculture and build successful independent 
economies.

Just to add to the misery, the Soviets used Cuban 'volunteers' to fight in the area. The
 author tells a story of sacrifice and triumphs. The nicely presented text is well-
supported by a wealth of illustration in the form of maps and photographs, lifting 
the lid on one of the lesser known proxy wars.
