Hi;
Once upon a time, in Africa, there was a war (1961 to 1974) who, a litle country (Portugal) fight alone against the Nacionalist of Angola, Moçambique and Guiné.
Russia, America and China helped (with money and material of war) the moviments (all we know why... the petroleum, gas and diamants are gooood !) and the litle country only stop with an internal revolution.
However, thousands of soldiers died, of both sides, and they wasthe trues heroes of that cruel (very, very, cruel) war.
Without politic you can see what was the war by photos, histories and places in the site:
Moçambique - Guerra Colonial
Please go and see. HONNOR TO THE HEROES
