After a brief introduction the book has five sections covering various periods of conflict in Africa each with its own overview and set of scenarios. This is then followed by a large range of sample unit organisations, vehicle information and a brief miniatures guide. It's finished off with a glossary and acronym guide (essential for Africa), bibliography, artwork references and the Fog of War cards. The book is in the standard style we have come to expect from Osprey Force on Force, full colour with various illustrations and photos of miniatures.
The conflicts covered are:
- The Congo Crisis, 1960-66
- The Portuguese Colonial Wars
- The Rhodesian Bush War, 1964-1979
- The South African Border War, 1966-89
- Recent conflicts focussing in particular on Operation Barras in Sierra Leone
Overall this looks like an excellent addition to the Force on Force library and I am really looking forward to reading through it properly.
