The War Business (Academic Version)
Inside the world's most notorious private army
A retelling of The War Business with additional dramatised material for Channel 4. We uncover the bloody truth of the world's most successful private army, Executive Outcomes. Sent wherever mineral resources like diamonds or oil promise wealth, these mercenaries, trained as soldiers in apartheid-era South Africa and equipped with state-of-the-art weapons of war, sell their security services to the highest bidder and frequently leave a trail of destruction in their wake. And British interests are behind it all.
