Someone Else's War: Mercenaries from 1960 to the Present

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.
