Life on the Razor's Edge: An Evening with Peter Slade

September's Program

Peter 'Razor' Slade will recount his colorful 40-year history as a solider, mercenery, and security consultant in places as diverse as Vietnam, Rhodesia, Cambodia, Iraq, and Thailand. Come and enjoy a fascinating evening of war stories and memories from his unique perspective.

As author Tim Boyden explains: "Few men have crammed more lives into one than Peter 'Razor' Slade - blooded in Vietnam as a combat soldier, adventurer, then a soldier of fortune in Cambodia, Africa and most recently, Iraq. He has endured five years in a maximum security gaol in Australia for a murder he did not commit - where I first met him - and diced with death as a security consultant and gun for hire. This is a warts and all account of an action packed life living on his wits in situations most of us would expect to encounter only in films or fiction."
