Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:101 Battalion (South Africa)/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

This article serves as one of the only referece pieces on the web dealing with 101 Battalion of the SWATF. A unit that played a crucial role in one of the largest armoured confrontations since WW2 and led indirectly to the Soviet Union not being in a position to hang onto Afghanistan and the eventual disintegration of that Union. They are an almost unknown military force that fought in a largely ignored and invisible war in an African backwater. The results of that war were to have global implications.
