Summary
"Who killed Koos de la Rey and who captured Christiaan de Wet? Here's a thrilling novel based on historical fact about ordinary men catapulted into uniform and driving their own cars into battle against an Afrikaner hero described as the world's greatest guerrilla leader. Told from the points of view of D H Saker, founder of Saker's garage, and Harm Oost, founder of Het Volk newspaper and head of De Wet's bodyguard, the action follows battles and chases across the Union of South Africa. Madge Fabian, a touring British actress, gets caught up in the events of the times and the magnetism of a driven Saker. At every stage, the characters in this conflict - one that could have changed the outcome of World War I - meet with unexpected reverses that have a similar impact as a bullet in the back.
