Welcome To Blackwater - Mercenaries, Money and Mayhem in Iraq (Hardcover)
Blackwater was the most notorious private contractor of the Global War on Terror. In this scathing, honest memoir, Morgan Lerette, an Army and Air Force veteran, details the truth of working as a Blackwater operator in Iraq. For eighteen months his days were filled with harrowing danger or mind-numbing tedium. Nights were raunchy parties with a cast of characters and antics to rival the most raucous frat house. Contractors had one goal: survive. Some didn't. For others, like Lerette, Blackwater proved a maturing experience that underscored the inhumanity of war.
Writing with deft irony and dark humor, Lerette pulls back the curtain on the Blackwater myth. He reveals a tale that is alternately laugh-out-loud absurd and cry-your-eyes-out sad as he navigates this pivotal chapter in his life and contemporary history.
