Overview

Zero Footprint: The True Story of a Private Military Contractor's Covert Assignments in Syria, Libya, And the World's Most Dangerous Places by Simon Chase, Ralph Pezzullo

An insider account of the shadowy world of private military contracting.

Simon Chase's life is a maze of burner phones, encrypted emails, secret meetings, and weaponry—all devoted to executing missions too sensitive for government acknowledgment. Working for the CIA's Special Activities Division, the U.S. DoD, the U.S. State Department, and British government entities, Chase has been on the trail of Bin Laden in Afghanistan, protected U.S. Generals in Iraq, and been part of an operation directly related to the U.S. Consulate overrun in Benghazi. ZERO FOOTPRINT leads us through this dangerous and thrilling world and tells the true story of a private military contractor whose work forms the foundation for American security abroad—especially when U.S. and UK militaries, intelligence agencies, and departments of state need something done that they can't—or won't—do themselves.
