I have been reading the book "Blackwater" by Jeremy Scahill and was wondering if the british forces employ civilian contractors. I dont mean mercenaries though, do the British have civilian truck drivers, construction workers etc doing work for them in Afghanistan?

From what i have read a lot of the logistics and construction that the American forces do in Afghanistan is carried out by civilian contractors in order to free up the soldiers for other activities.

Has anyone else read blackwater or currently reading it?
