Aden Insurgency


SKU: 9781862272255


Featuring vivid eyewitness accounts from combatants, civilians and terrorists alike, a new, riveting and important account of Britain’s last End of Empire conflict. As Cold War tensions escalated, a brutal fight was contested with the rebel tribes of the wild interior as well as terrorist assassins in the back streets of Aden.
Revealing the truth behind the ‘Mad Mitch’ legend and his clash with the high command and the successes and disasters of early SAS operation, this is one of the very few modern studies to examine Britain’s clandestine war in neighboring Yemen alongside her conflict in South America.

Jonathan Walker has published many articles, and lectures on aspects of the Great War. His previous works include The Blood Tub and he also edited Rowland Feilding’s War Letters to a Wife, both published by Spellmount Publishers.
