Dr Gennady Shubin is a Senior Research Fellow at the African Institute in the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow. He has co-authored and published various books, in particular on the history of South Africa (SA), the Anglo Boer War (1899-1902) and various memoirs of the Angolan War (1966-1989). Given his interest in and other publications on this subject, this book can be considered to be a useful contribution. Among all his previous publications, this is only the second of his six on the Angolan War, which was translated into English. One cannot help but wonder why his previous works were not translated into English or Afrikaans for the South African reader.
