"Fred was recruited by Simon Mann for the finest of all private military companies in Africa, Executive Outcomes. Fewer than two hundred of them defeated the rebels in their strongholds. Through political weakness, Executive Outcomes were made to leave the country, and chaos ensued. When the Sierra Leone army rebelled against the legitimate government and joined with the murderous RUF, committed men like Hinga Norman and British High Commissioner Peter Penfold realised that only the threat of force would defeat the rebels and restore democracy. In the absence of military commitment from the west, highly professional former soldiers spearheaded the fight. Three of these veterans kept a vital air bridge open. Fred's final action was supporting the SAS in their brilliant hostage release, Operation Barras"--Publisher description.
