The Sorrow of War: A Scauill of North Vietnam. Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly Scahill’s liberal horror story is about the company that has deployed many of the private contractors who have assisted the U.
Scahill, a regular contributor to the Nationamps up the scare language in his study of both Blackwater and the wealthy, ultra-conservative Prince family that founded the company, but luckily, Weiner does not. With his booming baritone reined tightly in check, Weiner coolly and calmly delivers the bad news. The parade of scaremongering may grow wearying, but Weiner maintains his composure throughout, offsetting Scahill to a degree by virtue of his unyielding temperateness.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This was a wonderful book. An overwhelming amount of relevant detail, which results in a connection of the dots. The author does a great job in showing the mix of money, politics, and ideology; and how this has affected the United States military. This book was recommended to me by someone that wanted me to learn about Blackwater and what it stands for in our world. I have read this with an open mind. I do think it is necessary to have Private Army during this outrage in the middle east.
Without these men the enemy would take over and be here. I do not know all the political jargon in this book. I do not follow much about politics. Now I play to be more informed as to what is going on with our world. The book is well written but it is only one sided. I am going to look for another one from the point of view from one of the men that are actually working for Blackwater.
I liked the book even though it is pages I read it in two days. I applaud these men for keeping the enemy under control. I don’t know if many other women will read this but I did like the book.
Maybe some women will want to know about this also. The authors waits until the end of the book to come to the realization that contractors were necessary because of the short sightness of the federal government. Look at what happened at Benghazi when there weren’t contractors to protect the diplomatic mission. A very well researched and documented book that chronicles the rise evolving into permanence of the best soldiers money can buy.
For such detailed material it is an easy read. However, the passages of what was going on with the Bush administration during the applicable period of time will break your heart. Yes, it was as bad as you suspected. Gave a good in depth look from one viewpoint as to how the company came to be and the issues since. Research Scahill, read this book, and make up your own mind. Either way, we’re in trouble as a Nation.
