Henry T. Smith's trilogy is set in the 1970s but it remains relevant to the 21st Century. It suggests what could happen if parts of the armed services are run free of the Labour Party's political interference and as a business which makes military resources and personnel available to civilians who can afford to hire them for profit or protection.
NOTE: Doing some of this is now official Labour Party policy for 2005!
