The Cold War was a period of many relatively small but very hot wars as the USSR 
and US fought through surrogates. Africa was a favourite location for several 
reasons. One was that news of what was happening could be better contained there. 
However, a major factor was the mess left by hastily and ill-planned decolonisation. 
As the European nations withdrew, they left prosperous and peaceful countries with 
a power vacuum that was quickly occupied by tyrants and corrupt political structures 
that were easy targets for communist agitation.

This unstable situation was to see the SAS involved, virtually continuously, between 
1968 and 1980 in counter-terrorist operations that were not reported at the time and 
have received little coverage since. This has been corrected by this intriguing book, 
written by a seasoned former senior member of C Squadron SAS. The absorbing 
story is supported by some very rare photographic images in illustration.
