Summary
Prince debunks myths about Blackwater that spread while he was forced to remain silent--myths that tarnished the memory of men who gave their lives for their country but never got the recognition they deserved. He reveals new information about some of the biggest controversies of the War on Terror, including:* The true story of the Nisour Square massacre in Baghdad.* The actual details of Blackwater's so-called impunity in Iraq.* The events leading up to the televised deaths of Blackwater contractors in Fallujah. Prince doesn't pretend to be perfect, and he doesn't hide the sometimes painful details of his private life. But he has done a great public service by setting the record straight. His book reads like a thriller but is too improbable to be fiction
