Border Mail: Postal History and Markings of the War in Angola and Along the Namibian Border 1975-1988, by George van den Hurk. This is a fascinating and original study of South African military postal history during Angola's Civil War. South African troops, garding the Namibian-Angolan border against guerrilla attacks of the South West Africa People's Organization, advanced into Angola in support of UNITA against Angolan marxist MPLA-government and Cuban forces. This account is followed by a study of the postal history emanating from the subsequent low-intensity war which lasted from 1976 to 1988. Numerous illustrations of postal markings and military frankings and other cachets, with a chapter covering value and scarcity, interesting historical background information, and the systematic ordering of the philatelic data of the period, make this a splendid work of reference. 2001, card covers, 346 pages, well illustrated, New.
