Ashcroft, James


The Lure: $1,000 a day as a hired gun in Iraq The Reality: for every insurgent killed, a dozen more rise up 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. James Ashcroft is a former British Infantry Captain who served in West Belfast and the former Republic of Yugoslavia. He served as a private security contractor in Iraq from September 2003 until spring 2005.Ashcroft, James is the author of 'Making a Killing: The Explosive Story of a Hired Gun in Iraq', published 2007 under ISBN 9780753512340 and ISBN 0753512343.
