In a review at the Washington Times, retired Brigadier General Dale White has lauded Robert K/ Brown’s memoirs, I am Soldier of Fortune.

“Each issue of Soldier of Fortune — circulation 1 million plus — is iconic to readers of a special stripe: veterans, active duty, special operators, mercenaries, gun lovers, law enforcement, adventurers, survivalists and those wish they were any of those.
