Soldiers of Fortune - from Mercenaries to PMCs (Myth20c - Ep140)
The rise of the Private Military Contractor, or PMC, may seem like a recent phenomena, but the tradition of hiring mercenary armies is an ancient one. These enigmatic ‘soldiers of fortune’ wear no flag, offer seemingly little loyalty to anyone other than the highest bidder, and operate globally using the latest in military hardware and techniques - all under the cover of secrecy when doing their job right.
