‘Mayhem in the Med’ A Chronicle of the Cyprus Emergency 1955-1960
This title has been produced to mark the 50th anniversary of the commencement of that troubled period known as the Cyprus Emergency 1955-60. The book takes the form of a daily newspaper to allow the reader to experience events as unfolding news stories. Editorial comment provides a fuller context and the background information necessary for the complete comprehension of this conflict.As the sovereign power, Britains response was to conduct an anti-terrorist operation. This involved troops from all the British armed services as well as the British Police Force.Over the five year Emergency, many regiments, squadrons, ships and other units were deployed and are often mentioned in the text. The work is illustrated by a number of photographs, some previously unpublished and provided by those who served in Cyprus at the time. This volume will be of great interest to those who were on the island during this period, as well as to historians and other military collectors.
