Jihan El-Tahri manages to avoid falling into the trap here of giving an ideological account of almost three decades of Cuban interventionism in Africa. By giving a voice to key witnesses from all camps who stood to defend a complex set of strategic interests in the Congo, Guinea-Bissau and Angola, she uncovers the formidable war effort mustered by Cuba in support of a certain vision of African independence, yet without slipping into revolutionary romanticism, or echoing the anti-Castro bile of the Western media.
