Secret SAS Missions in Africa

Michael Graham is the author of "Secret SAS Missions in Africa" and now works full time as the head of security at Foodstuffs HQ in Mt. Roskill. His book is thought to be the first to tell the story of the little known C Squadron of the Special Air Service.

Operating in Africa, the Squadron was involved in counter communist terrorist operations from 1968-1980. "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". (www.boomerangbooks.com)

Much of the SAS' actions are highly classified, and not commented on by the British government or the Ministry of Defence.

Come hear Michael share his personal life experiences with us.
