Get An Oral History of the Portuguese Colonial War: Conscripted PDF

By Ângela Campos

This e-book explores the lived reminiscence of the Portuguese colonial conflict (1961-1974) in the course of the research of thirty-six oral heritage interviews with ex-combatants of this clash. The meanings that the fighters attributed to their battle studies then and now are the book’s analytical focus. This venture seeks to reply to the subsequent questions: how has the general public reminiscence of this colonial clash built in Portugal from 1974 to nearly 2010? what matters does an oral historian come across while accomplishing interviews with veterans on a prior that is still worrying for lots of? what have been – and are – the main major points of the warfare adventure and its aftermath for the veterans? how do the veterans understand their team identification and their ancient state of affairs? and what cutting edge views does oral heritage provide to the historiography of the Portuguese colonial war?
