Overview

It is not generally known that Sub Saharan Africa has a long tradition of successful counter-terrorism operations. During the 1950's to 1989 many counter-terrorism operations took place in Colonial Kenya, Rhodesia and Apartheid South Africa. It is historical fact that the Security Forces almost always defeated the terrorists whilst using very limited resources. They did this by applying COIN & counter-terrorism techniques not known to the general public and in many cases rewrote the handbook on counter-insurgency.

This book is a comparative study on the different teqniques used by the terrorists and the security forces and a clear pattern emerged which is discussed. The author also considered how the well-known Malayan Principles did not work in Sub Saharan African COIN operations and in fact will never work in Africa. He also warns on the lack of solid intelligence in the war on terror from Sub Saharan Africa and the reasons why it is not as good as it could and should be. This book is not fiction and read in Military Academies of 5 countries.
