Daniel Carney – The Wild Geese – First UK Edition 1977

A first edition, first printing published by Heinemann in 1977. A very good (or better) book without inscriptions (neat previous booksellers stamp to front pastedown). No inscriptions. Some wear to the top edge of the boards. In a neatly clipped, lightly spine faded dust wrapper featuring superb artwork of a goose releasing a hand grenade.

“The Wild Geese” was later adapted into a hugely successful film in 1978. Set in Africa, the story revolves around a group of mercenaries hired to rescue a deposed African leader. The narrative delves into themes of loyalty, betrayal, and the harsh realities of war. The film, directed by Andrew V. McLaglen, features an ensemble cast including Richard Burton and Roger Moore. Released during the era of action-packed war movies, “The Wild Geese” gained attention for its intense combat sequences and exploration of moral dilemmas within the mercenary profession.
