‘Mad’ Mike Hoare

In Social Matter, Benjamin Welton has an excellent essay on ““Mad” Mike Hoare: White Giant”, which discusses a famous group of English mercenaries in Africa, and various historical inaccuracies about Belgian and English colonialism.

Having recently watched Dark of the Sun (1968), featuring the greatly underrated Rod Taylor, methinx it’s now time to watch The Wild Geese (1978), a film starring Richard Burton, Richard Harris, and Roger Moore. Those three guys in a mercenary action flick? I mean: c’mon.
