An interesting insight into the use of "Pseudo" gangs to counter insurrections by terrorists who sometimes had external assistance. Detailed accounts of attacks carried out aginst armed gangs in hostile terrain.In the Cities there are technical operations and counter-espionage operations against Foreign Intelligence Services.

Professional Reviews

Derek Franklin's well written account of the Mau Mau troubles in Kenya is if value both to the casual reader as well as to Historians and students.It gives a clear view of the troubles brought about by one tribe-the Kikuyu-It allows the reader to decide without interference from hindsight whether the Mau Mau was a freedom movement or a dissident group within one historically turbulent tribe.The value of Franklin's book is made clear by reference to him in the BBC Radio 4 programme "Death in the Bush"(broadcast on the 6th March,1999) and Channel 4 TV broadcast "Secret History"(broadcast on 24th August,1999.Franklin himself appeared on both programmes
