Audio Book Summary

This national bestseller is 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 firsthand 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 in Zero Footprint will 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.

    Outstanding book! I love how the author is as transparent as he can be given the subject matter. Really makes us appreciate the freedoms we have from those who protect us.

    Exciting, evolving to heart-wrenching, and all the while riveting, this tale is an unexpected gem! A look into one man's life that parallels many. Simultaneously heros and wounded birds, this book highlights how our modern warriors are often poorly understood, and how that disconnect is a loss for everyone.

    I wanted to like this book but it just did not do it for me. Some of the stories seemed exaggerated which made the whole thing less than believable for me. I gave it a 3 being generous. The narrator was pretty good though and very animated.
