Default Scientia Militaria - South African Journal of Military Studies

A long established academic journal, hitherto unknown; hat tip to SWJournal author Tom today. The current issue has several items of 'small wars' interest, such as a book review of "recce" action and an article on the Ratel IFV impact on regional warfare. A quick look suggests a range of opinions.

Their introduction:
The journal is published bi-annually by the Faculty of Military Science of Stellenbosch University, South Africa. It is an accredited, peer reviewed scholarly journal, which investigates a broad spectrum of matters and issues relating to military affairs, and publishes both discipline-based and inter-disciplinary research.

As one author reminds the reader Southern Africa for twenty-five years was a laboratory for 'small wars' and 'learning by fighting'.
