Editorial Reviews

Review

"…Carafano (senior fellow, Heritage Foundation) is coherent and often compelling; he dispels many myths about private contractors in war and solidly critiques much of the existing literature on private military companies… Recommended…Graduate, research, and professional collections."

Review

"This penetrating analysis of battlefield contracting is essential for defense intellectuals and students of contemporary warfare. Dr. Carafano takes on a phenomenon that is poorly understood in Washington today, but is an inescapable part of modern war." (Dr. Antulio J. Echevarria II, US Army War College)

This is such an interesting topic, the author had some good facts but the writing was dull and editing did nothing to lift it.
