The Boer War and that Anglo-Zulu war, Mark Conley mentioned it awhile ago, so you might want to ask him about it.

Hey there sherman:

anything with more recent effect on south africa as a war or conflict would have to be the internal rebel struggles of the different political groups. These were often fought with mercenary groups, often merc against merc, so the line is really very fuzzy..especially 1960-1989. its all some form of small group conflicts.

hope this helps.

Although it's not what you want, you should try reading "The Washing of the Spears". It's a complete history of the Zulu empire. Apparently Shaka Zulu was the original D.I. Took a bunch of laid back goatherders and turned em into a lean mean killing machine.

The South West African / Angolan border conflict of the 1970s-1980s is the most recent major event in our military history.

As told by the guys that did the fighting: http://www.geocities.com/sadfbook/bgtoc.htm
