Karl Hack ends with:
Quote:
In short, this is an authoritative and exhaustive resource for anyone who needs to understand the Cyprus emergency in its domestic and international aspects or is interested in issues surrounding the control of force and reactions to excessive force and losses of control.
There is an old, closed RFI thread on EOKA's leader George Grivas, which has good posts:http://council.smallwarsjournal.com/...ead.php?t=1509

2) Huw Bennett, Fighting the Mau Mau, The British Army and Counter-Insurgency in the Kenya Emergency:
Quote:
This is a superbly researched book, based a tremendous amount of archival research including the secret Colonial Office archive, which has only just been released to the National Archives in Kew. It is vital reading for anyone seeking to understand the British Army's role in modern counter-insurgency actions, whether in Kenya or in Afghanistan and this book cannot be recommended too highly.
