War in a Land of Sand and Stones
During Spanish Sahara and the Ifni War (1956 - 1976) the native Saharans fought for independence from Spain, and when the Spanish finally left the Moroccans walked in. This period mainly appeals to me because La Legion (Spanish Foreign Legion) were involved and it lets me get post-WWII equipment and Muslim guerrillas. I haven't really got into it yet, but I've found some stuff and had some thoughts.
