Escape from Baghdad : First Time Was For the Money, This Time It's Personal Paperback

4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Gun-for-hire James 'Ash' Ashcroft thought he'd left Iraq behind.

Last time he only got out alive thanks to the bravery of his interpreter and friend Sammy.

But now a call for help means Ash must once again face the chaos of war-torn Baghdad - and this time there's no pay cheque.

Abandoned by the occupying Coalition Forces, Sammy and his family face certain death at the hands of the Shia-dominated Iraqi Police and the death squads that roam the streets unless Ash and his team can get in and get them to safety over the border.

This is the action-packed story of their audacious escape from Baghdad.

It is a gripping account of the chaos of war, where the only thing that can be relied upon is the bond between former brothers-in-arms.

Enjoyed this! Not 100% sure there isn't a little embellishment going on in places, but the story is well-backed up by the photos and shed unique light on the Circuit through observations I've not come across before. Original.
