The poster of Tonic’s Friction De Guerre Illustration book. I carried out this project in VCD(4)as part of my VCD(4) studies.
Friction de Guerre, April 2012
“Chance, or frcition de guerre- the myriad minor mishaps which throw grit into the engine of war, and make its course strictly unpredictable.”
This book and its illustrations deals with the South African Border war (with Namibian communist freedom fighters, Cuban, East German and Russian proxy forces) on or across the Namibian- Angolan border in the 1966-1989 period. Specifically, the narratives of South African conscripts is portrayed.
