Simon Mann: 'My life as a mercenary'
Simon Mann has published Cry Havoc, the story of his life as an international mercenary, written in the style of an adventure thriller.

Speaking to James Naughtie, he said he made about 10m from his mercenary activities in Angola, but "however good the money is" the moral case "has to stack up".

"Although I certainly wanted to make money, I also wanted to make sure I was not doing so in an immoral or amoral fashion."
