Description by OLDIES.com:

They're the Best in the Business... The Dogs of War...

Their home is the battlefield. Their calling is war. Their only loyalty is to each other. They are The Wild Geese, 50 crack mercenary paratroopers commanded by fearless veteran Colonel Faulkner (Richard Burton). Their mission: to land in a remote and hostile corner of Africa, free the one man who can change a nation's destiny, seize the airport and make their escape. But while The Wild Geese are fighting and dying in the African sun, sinister forces in the corridors of power are working to seal their fate...

Product Description:

A British industrialist recruits a group of mercenaries to penetrate the African wilderness and rescue a deposed political leader awaiting execution at the hands of a military despot. While the prisoner is a man with noble visions of racial reform, the industrialist who's financing the operation cares only about his own business interests. When the rescue mission is no longer to his advantage, the businessman decides to alter the course of events -- setting off an explosion of violence.

Plot Synopsis:

A band of war-hardened mercenaries journey into the heart of Africa to rescue the imprisoned leader of an African nation. A tough, gritty action adventure.
