Civilian Warriors: The Inside Story of Blackwater and the Unsung Heroes of the War on Terror Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The founder of Blackwater offers the gripping true story of the worlds most controversial military contractor.

In 1997, former Navy SEAL Erik Prince started a business that would recruit civilians for the riskiest security jobs in the world. As Blackwaters reputation grew, demand for its services escalated, and its men eventually completed nearly 100,000 missions for both the Bush and Obama administrations.

It was a huge success except for one problem: Blackwater was demonized around the world. Its employees were smeared as mercenaries, profiteers, or worse. And because of the secrecy requirements of its contracts with the Pentagon, the State Department, and the CIA, Prince was unable to correct false information. But now hes finally able to tell the full story about some of the biggest controversies of the War on Terror, in a memoir that reads like a thriller.

About the Author

Erik Prince, a former Navy SEAL, is the founder and former CEO of Blackwater. Since selling the company in 2010, he has pursued a variety of new business ventures.
