Tragic for the lady, in fact all bloody wars are tragic.
As for "just rolling on bye" or "fleeing the scene" no. They did what they were probably instructed (and trained) to do.... DON'T STOP.
Don't stop for anything, official roadblocks, unofficial roadblocks, nothing!

Mercenary organisations have existed since the time of the Pharaohs, but came into real prominence during the expansion of the Roman Republic. Each Consular legion had a sizeable contingent of mercenaries. For the most part they were missile troops and cavalry; but they did enlist Campanian Hoplites to serve in their line infantry.

The biggest mercenaries, to my mind, are the Swiss. Swiss mercenaries fought for every major European power at one time or another.
The Normans and Anglo-Saxons exported a lot of Mercenaries during the early middle ages.

My cousin was a Mercenary. He fought in the Serb/Croat war after leaving the Foreign Legion. He was originally was a Marine commando; but got discharged when he had a fight in a pub. He subsequently spent some time in her majesties pleasure. It was after that he joined the legion.
He went to a place in London, run by an ex-SAS guy. That is how he ended up fighting in the Serb/Croat war. He made good money too.

Anyway, that Is enough of me.

Don't forget the greatest mercenaries of all . The Gurkhas, these proud, loyal and brave men have fought alongside the British Army for well over a century, and they didn't do it just for the money, they alway's got less pay than the British soldier.

Fuck yes; the Gurkhas. They are fantastic troops. Probably the best fighters in the world. Just ask the Taliban. :mrgreen:

I knew that!

My cousin fought in the first gulf war with the legion. He was into explosives. I was a kid when he came back. He was back literally a few weeks after he left the legion before he left for Croatia. I remember we gave him a party, and him telling my dad that he was going to start a window cleaning business up with his mate LOL.

I saw him last year funny enough. He doesn't really speak much about what he got up to during the conflict in the Balkans.

My ex. was sent to both the Bosnia and Kosovo conflicts.
@ Tuor10, after what he saw, especially in Bosnia, I'm not surprised your cousin does not want to talk about it!
