Will the dogs of war matter if there is havoc?

The Day of the Jackal is probably the best known, but my favourite Forsyth novel is The Dogs of War.  In this novel about miners and mercenaries in a fictitous African republic, the ‘tribe’ of migrant workers play a crucial role — you should really read the book, but if not, see here for what I mean).

Dogs of war are being assembled in the deserts of the Persian Gulf.  Will they help if there is havoc?
