A chance meeting with Wilbur Smith and some sage advice led Michael Graham to write a book about his experience in the SAS in Africa. Michael was a covert SAS soldier during the Cold War in Africa and after explaining his past to Mr Smith, the best selling author advised him to start putting pen to paper.
The Book, Secret SAS Missions in Africa, is a first hand account of covert operations during the Cold War period of 1968-1980. Michael tells the story of C Squadron, an elite but little-known branch of the SAS, charged with engaging in Africa's counter-terrorism activities. It was during the period of the second grab for Africa, with Russian and Chinese forces backing various rebel groups.
