'The Dogs of War'  by Frederick FORSYTH. Published in hardback by Hutchinson & Co. (Publishers) Limited, London, please note that this book is a 1974 second impression edition book which is in excellent condition although there is a gift inscription on the front book end page. This book is NOT price-clipped at all. Please note that the Shipping Costs for UK buyers ONLY are £3.75p GBP by Royal Mail 2nd Class parcels (in addition to actual sale price).

What has contributed to Frederick Forsyth's phenomenal success as the world best-seller of the last three years? First, it is his ability to devise a first-rate story and tell it superbly. Secondly, he has devised a unique blend of characters, so that the reader never quite knows how much of the story really happened. Finally, and most important, he contributes a formidable and detailed knowledge of the subjects he writes about - not merely research in other books but first-hand experience.

The world of the mercenary soldier, which has fascinated Frederick Forsyth since he reported the Biafra War, forms the background of his great third novel. In the foreground a fast moving story investigates some little-known and sinister corners of other activities - mining, high finance, banking and the secret world of arms dealing.

The machinations of Sir James Manson, ruthless head of a London-based mining concern, involve a plot to overthrow the Government of a remote African republic and eliminate its dictator. Manson's motives are far from altruistic, and word of his firm's mineral discoveries leaks to the Russians. While "Cat" Shannon, the mercenary leader recruited by Manson, is getting together his force, the Russians press ahead with their plans. Step by step, Forsyth takes us round Europe - from Paris to Ostend to Marseilles - while the mercenaries are recruited; from Berne to Brugge where the undercover financial deals are set up; from Germany to Italy, Spain and Yugoslavia where the arms are bought, and a ship commissioned to transport the men and their equipment. The excitement gains momentum with every page until the climax of a pitched battle for the African president's palace. Its outcome, ironically different from that planned by the plotters, gives an added dimension to the third and greatest of Frederick Forsyth's novels.  

This 1974 second impression book runs to 384 pages. The book is in excellent condition (gift inscription to front book end page) and a terrific read. Please note that the Shipping Costs for UK buyers ONLY are £3.75p GBP by Royal Mail 2nd Class parcels.

The author: After education at Tonbridge, Frederick FORSYTH, who had qualified for a pilot's licence a few days after his seventeenth birthday, signed on in the RAF and gained his wings at nineteen, becoming the youngest pilot in the Air Force. Then he went into journalism and it was in the Reuter bureau in Paris that he amassed the detailed information about the OAS which was to become the basis of The Day of the Jackal. He later transferred to Berlin and that enabled him to compile the dossier about Nazis still in high-ranking positions in Germany which was the controversial feature of The Odessa File. Next, he covered the Biafra War both for the BBC and as a free-lance. This not only gave him the material for his only non-fiction work, The Biafra Story,which bought him into direct contact with the world of the mercenary soldiers: hence The Dogs of War. Frederick Forsyth and his wife Carole were married in 1973 and live in as farmhouse in Spain.
