This fascinating book is the first to cover the little known C Squadron of the Special Air Service. Operating in 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 Africa** paints a graphic and thrilling account of their covert operations and the colourful characters that undertook them.

Hardcover, 200 pages.

Secret SAS Missions in Africa: C Squadrons Counter-Terrorist Operations 1968 - 1980 (Michael Graham )

Couldn't put the book down!

Really great story-telling. A little confusing with the author's caveat that there is basically a lot of poetic license used, however, the stories are still amazing to read and to "be a part of" as the author takes you along for some of the missions that these amazing, elite soldiers undertook. Respect, respect, respect!

Secret SAS mission in Africa

Excellent book on fighting a war on limited resources. Quality men let down by the politics of the time . UK and the States have a lot to answer for.
