Geraghty's in-depth, hard-hitting analysis of shady events involving British mercenaries will have many reading late into the night while wrapped in their sleeping bags and balaclavas. ( HERALD)
A surprisingly dense account of the life of the mercenary from Sixties Africa to present-day Iraq captures the cruel dramas of warfare along with the political realities behind them. ( TIMES)
The vast expansion of commercial and politicised warfare - in the wake of the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq - is examined in this enthralling, highly controversial book. The freelance soldier, whether fighting for money or an adopted case, has always been a fascinating but little understood phenomenon. Never more so than now. For some, the mercenary is heroic; for those who do not know the euphoria of surviving a battle, he is a bloodthirsty killer. Tony Geraghty's book reveals the truth about their lives.
