Executive Outcomes was the title of the most successful private army of modern times. In Angola, Sierra Leone and Papua New Guinea, it stepped in while the UN revealed itself as little more than a debating society. But the motives of this mercenary army are open to question: was it more interested in protecting Sierra Leone's diamond mines than the people caught up in a savage guerrilla war?
Journalist Jim Hooper followed Executive Outcomes on operation in Angola, Sierra Leone and the Congo. Now he can reveal the incredible story of a mercenary army in action. To quote one of his sources would be difficult here, but suffice to say, the characters in this book have been there, done it and are still going back for more. And they’re good at it; they’re still alive.Biografía del autor:
