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