Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Based on interviews with mercenaries of many nationalities, this text investigates the shadowy world of soldiers of fortune. It reveals how white mercenaries came to play a key role in the struggle for the Congo and how the end of the war in Vietnam coincided with the start of the war in Rhodesia, attracting a new generation of freelance soldiers. It covers the Angolan debacle of 1976 and a succession of other operations, revealing for the first time details of an attempted coup in Malta. The role played by mercenaries in war-torn Yugoslavia is also covered due to the author's first-hand experience of the conflict as a photojournalist.

From the Publisher:

Why would a soldier fight someone else's war? Is it the money, or a desire to help the underdog? Or is a fire fight the ultimate thrill? Based on extensive interviews with mercenaries of many nationalities, Someone Else's War reveals the motivations of these modern "soldiers of fortune" and the incredible risks they take. The book first looks at how white mercenaries came to play a key role in the struggle for the Congo in the 1960s, and how the end of the war in Vietnam coincided with the start of the war in Rhodesia, attracting a new generation of mercenary soldiers. The story moves on from the Angolan debacle of 1976, to a succession of operations in Africa and South America, and on to the Balkan conflict. Written by a former mercenary, this hard-hitting account shoots down the Hollywood stereotypes.
