32 Battalion South Africa Defense – The Terrible Ones: South Africa’s ’32 Battalion’ Grensoorlog – The series that covers the South African Border War (Angolan Bush War) – 1966 to 1989 …
Voor 1994 het ons ‘n baie sterk weermag-lugmag-vloot gehad. Elkeen was uniek, die 32s veral word soms baie uitgesonder – iets om op trots te wees omdat hul deel was van ons om kommunisme te beveg. Maar hulle was nie alleen om kommunistiese vure dood te slaan nie. Dissipline, self-dissipline en respek. Die wat tuis was en gebid het vir die wat blootgestel is aan die oorlog. Geliefdes wat afgestaan is aan die dood. Respek.
For the first time ever we reveal previously censored military footage which unashamedly tells the story of the true events of South Africa’s Bush War. This series packs a powerful punch providing an intimate, sometimes shocking, yet balanced glimpse of an important era in Africa’s history.
GRENSOORLOG / BUSH WAR constitutes a literal unburdening for those whose voices have been silenced for so long. The viewer is taken on a journey that moves through a bloody November 1975 (Angolan Independence) and culminates with clashes at Cuito Cuanavale (1988). GRENSOORLOG / BUSH WAR offers new perspectives on the Bush War through paradigms of diplomatic and military history and cultural studies.
Those interviewed have challenged the boundaries, broken the silences and even tackled some of the taboos about the war. GRENSOORLOG / BUSH WAR firmly places the issues of TRUTH & RECONCILIATION back onto the Southern African political agenda and at the centre of popular imagination.
The series consists of a 2 volume 4 disc set.
Available in Afrikaans as GRENSOORLOG and BUSH WAR in English. At checkout please indicate which language DVD set you wish to receive.
