An Unorthodox Soldier: Peace and War and the Sandline Affair  
Lt-Col Tim Spicer

Tim Spicer has always led an exciting and controversial life. Having won the Sword of Honour at Sandhurst he served in Northern Ireland, Cyprus, Germany, the Falklands and Bosnia. He rose steadily through the ranks to become one of Britain’s leading battalion commanders. This military career provided him with the background and experience that later led him to set up Sandline International one of the world’s foremost private military companies, which he now heads–and to walk into some of the most controversial events in the decade.
