Interesting, compelling and scary portrait of America's use of mercenaries... though the book could have used a stronger editor I found it enjoyable.

I have never read anything so absurdly biased. Hard to take seriously and gain accurate objective information.

This guy has serious issues. I would give it zero stars if there was such a rating, but there isn't so one star will have to do. Anyone who thinks BW is a mercenary army is full of cow dung and shows as much ignorance about the subject as this so called author does. If you like good fiction, then maybe this will entertain you. If you want the truth, you won't find it here. If you think this is the truth, then Fuck you, too.

I first looked at this book in 2007 and decided to pass after a short flip through. It seemed a bit like a hatchet job. A few years go by and I decided to give it a shot. It seems like I was right ... Read full review
