  • Abstract:  Eighteen years after the Battle of Cassinga (4 May 1978) in southern Angola between the SADF and SWAPO, it is still a contentious issue. It is clear that these events are looked at from two entirely opposing viewpoints. In the article a few controversial issues are examined, the most relevant one being the question whether Cassinga was a refugee camp for women and children or a fully equipped military base. Closely linked to this is the argument whether either of the two opposing military forces could get any mileage out of the international media. The mere fact that not all the information on these events is available, is one of the most serious problems the military historian encounters in his search to establish what happened on that specific day.
