Copyrighted 1974 by an author who knows first hand which end the bullets come out of. I'm a military buff and find no fault with Forsyth- well written. I recommend it with no reservations.

One of Forsythe's best books. A group of Mercenaries is hired by a company to make sure that a country's brutal dictator is removed... so they can put in their own brutal dictator, who will sign over mineral rights to the company. Fast moving and brilliant, this spawned a decent movie (with Chris Walken) but the book is a breath taking read. Highly recommended.
