South African Border War

The South African Border War, commonly referred to as the Angolan Bush War in South Africa, was a conflict that took place from 1966 to 1989 largely in South-West Africa (now Namibia) and Angola between South Africa and its allied forces (mainly the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola, UNITA) on the one side and the Angolan government, South-West Africa People's Organisation (SWAPO), and their allies (mainly Cuba) on the other.

This road was called "Oom Willie se Witpad" Uncle Willie's white road. A notorious road for land mines in the red zone in Northern Namibia (then South West Africa) There are few ex soldiers that do not know this road.
