A dramatic insider account of the world of private military contracting.

Armored cars, burner phones, top-notch weaponry and top-secret missions--this is the life of today's private military contractor. Like author Simon Chase, many PMCs were once the world's top military operatives, and since retiring from outfits like US Navy SEAL TEAM Six and the UK's Special Boat Service, they have devoted their lives to executing sensitive and hazardous missions overseas.

Working at the request of U.S. and British government entities as well as for private clients, he takes on jobs that require "zero footprint," with no trace of their actions left behind.

Chase delivers first-hand accounts of tracking Bin Laden in Afghanistan and being one of the first responders after the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. We see his teams defuse terrorist bombs, guard dignitaries, and protect convoys traveling through perilous territory--and then there are the really big jobs: top-secret "zero footprint" missions that include searching for High Value Targets and setting up arms shipping networks.

The missions inZero Footprintwill shock readers, but so will the personal dangers. Chase and the men he works with operate without government backup or air rescue. If they die serving their country--they remain anonymous. There are no military honors or benefits. Contractors like Simon Chase are the unsung heroes in the war against terrorism, a strong, but largely invisible force--until now.

Editorial Reviews

"As a twenty-four year veteran of the Green Berets and twelve years as a private military contractor, I can tell you that Zero Footprint is an accurate, exciting, no-holds-barred account of the often grey and very dangerous world of private military contracting. Simon Chase has fought on the front lines in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and Libya, and lived to talk about it. His account of the secret mission he ran in Benghazi is chilling and sure to create headlines. I recommend this important book by Simon Chase and Ralph Pezzullo to anyone interested in how war is actually waged in today's world."-Retired US Special Forces Master Sergeant Changiz Lahidji
