Finished reading THE DOGS OF WAR by Frederick Forsyth. This novel, first published in 1974, has antiheroes --- tried, tested, fearless and ruthless mercenaries.
Sir James Manson is a British mining tycoon. He got filthy rich by bribing African leaders for mining concessions. Tests on rock samples reveal that the Crystal Mountain in Zangaro, a tiny West African republic, contain $$$billions' worth of platinum, a rare precious metal. Three major players control the world platinum market --- USA, communist Russia and South Africa. Manson wants exclusive right to exploit Crystal Mountain but Zangora's president is a Russian puppet. So Manson hires a band of mercenaries to topple the government and install his own puppet. Will he accomplish his goals?
