(The geography of a revolutionary war: SWAPO in South West Africa). [Die geografie van 'n revolusionere oorlog: SWAPO in Suidwes- Afrika.]

Barnard W.S. (1982)

Interprets South Africa's unconventional war along the SWA-Angola border against SWAPO in terms of McColl's three-phased model of the insurgent state. It is suggested that SWAPO crossed the initial threshold of violence in 1966, thereby entering the first phase, and escalated the war into its second phase in 1976. Doubts are expressed as to SWAPO's ability to progress beyond the second phase by military means, but, because of the party's political successes, a military victory may be irrelevant.-English summary
