View Full Version : Military fiction starring the FAL?

Anybody know of any good reads with FAL's? Other than a brief bit at the beginning of "Dogs of War" by Frederick Forsyth, I don't know of any, and I need something to read.

Bantam War Classic "War of the Running Dogs" about the SAS in Malaysia. 4 man patrols and the fal. Nonfiction, great read. Suprisingly, all the other books I have on the subject only show the Enfield jungle carbine and greener shotgun, but I think WotRD was L1A1 (its been 10+ years since I read it)

"Dark of the Sun" by Wilber A. Smith. My favorite Author. About a group of mercenaries in the former Belgian Congo in about 1964. They call them FNs.
You can get it on tape.
