Publisher Description

This fascinating book is the first to cover the little known C Squadron of the Special Air Service. Operating in East Africa, the Squadron was involved in almost continuous counter communist terrorist operations over the period 1968 to 1980. In the unstable final stages of British colonial and white rule, the Squadron was never short of action. African nationalist movements, backed by Russia s and China s direct and indirect support posed a constant and deadly threat to the existing regimes. Small highly trained detachments of the SAS with highly developed bush warfare skills proved devastatingly effective and achieved results out of all proportion to their size. Often their enemies believed that they were facing rival factions and turned on each other. The inevitable involvement of African wildlife adds an extra dimension of excitement Written by a seasoned former senior member of C Squadron, Secret 'SAS Missions in East Africa' paints a graphic and thrilling account of their covert operations and the colourful characters that undertook them. AUTHOR: Mike Graham was born in Burnley, Lancashire but brought up in Rhodesia. He was called up for National Service in the Rhodesian Army. After being commissioned as an officer he transferred to the Regular Army and joined the Rhodesian SAS (C Squadron), rising to be Second-in-Command. His and his fellow officers experiences are the subject of this book. He left the Army as a Major and emigrated to New Zealand in 1990. 16 pages b/w plates

Factual read but not in order of events sometimes was somewhat confusing.
