Formative Years… we all have to start somewhere – don’t we? It is just that the formative years of Martin were significantly different to those of most. He had only just turned sixteen when he had killed his first – the first of many. By the age of twenty-one he had killed hundreds more. Fleeing to Belgium, as a schoolboy, he is recruited into a ruthless mercenary organisation – ‘La Légion’. Undergoing intensive and sometimes brutal training in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, he emerges as a well-trained and psychologically conditioned killer. From the brutal carnage, which is the Congo and Biafra, to the targeted killings and assassinations in Vietnam; by the time Martin has turned twenty-one, he has experienced many lives ... and taken many lives as well - hundreds! These are his ‘Formative Years’!
