Reviews for Big Boy Rules: America's Mercenaries Fighting in Iraq

[A] harrowing expose. Time Magazine Steve Fainaru tells a story that is at the heart of the war in Iraq: the U.S. military's unprecedented reliance on mercenaries. It is a dark tale that until now has remained largely untold, and is related brilliantly here. To understand this war, you must read this book. The Washington Post
