Summary, etc.:
The name Blackwater, the world's largest private military contractor, became infamous early in the Iraq War, when four of its men were murdered by a mob in Fallujah and hung from a bridge. Since then, Blackwater has expanded dramatically; its men have been involved in scandals, including a shooting spree in Iraq that caused the Iraqi government to blacklist the company. As author Suzanne Simons reveals in this first-ever inside look, based on extraordinary access to Blackwater founder Erik Prince, Blackwater is just the tip of Erik Prince's empire. The full story of Erik Prince and his now-crumbling empire is a story of one of the modern world's most influential military figures, and it has never been told. Prince shuns publicity except when absolutely necessary, to tamp down a scandal; but here, he has given Suzanne Simons hours of interviews; access to his staff; invitations to join him on trips to Afghanistan; and more.--From publisher description.
