Former soldier and private military contractor (PMC) Gary Roberts, a client of book PR agency Palamedes PR, has enjoyed front-page coverage.
The author, whose new military memoir Seven Point Six Two: The True Story Of Soldiers For Hire In Iraq is out now through Steel City Press, has been featured in the print edition of regional daily newspaper The Star, which serves Sheffield, where he lives.
Inside the newspaper there is a double-page feature about Roberts’ dangerous life as a PMC working in Iraq, protecting clients against insurgent attacks. He also discusses an investigation by the Iraq Historic Allegations Team (IHAT) into a confirmed killing of an Iraqi insurgent while serving in the Army. The investigation was formally closed, without any charges being brought, in 2019.
