The Malayan Special Force in the Heart of Africa
Siew Soo Tan
A Malaysian army officer recounts the little known history of the Malayan Special Force which served as peacekeepers with the United Nations in Zaire for nineteen months between 1960 and 1963. It was an extraordinary honour for a country, barely three years independent itself and facing its own internal struggles with the communist insurgency, to be involved in attempts to calm the turmoil in another newly independent state. With a foreword by Tunku Abdul Rahman, Malaysia's first prime minister. Very Good Hardback. First Edition. 107 pages. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
