Making A Killing Summary

Making A Killing: The Explosive Story of a Hired Gun in Iraq by James Ashcroft

In September 2003, James 'Ash' Ashcroft, a former British Infantry Captain, arrived in Iraq as a 'gun for hire'. It was the beginning of an 18-month journey into blood and chaos. In this action-packed page-turner, Ashcroft reveals the dangers of his adrenalin-fuelled life as a security contractor in Baghdad, where private soldiers outnumber non-US Coalition forces in a war that is slowly being privatised. From blow-by-blow accounts of days under mortar bombardment to revelations about life operating deep within the Iraqi community, Ashcroft shares the real, unsanitised story of the war in Iraq - and its aftermath - direct from the front line.

Making A Killing Reviews

"This diary of death and destruction radiates not just personality, but that elusive, lyrical honesty the existentialists used to call 'authenticity'." * Daily Telegraph *
