Synopsis

 

It’s 1880 and the atmosphere is volatile in the South African province of the Transvaal. The discovery of diamonds has bred greed and violence, while a strong anti-British feeling is taking hold amongst the Boer farmers. In addition, the bePedi tribe continues to rampage after the defeat of their Zulu allies at Rorke’s Drift just one year ago.

War-weary from the army’s recent campaign in Afghanistan, former captain Simon Fonthill and his servant “352” Jenkins are homeward-bound when the cry for help comes. An old friend has been kidnapped in Kimberley, on South Africa’s new Diamond Frontier, and the pair must go to her aid before redeeming a promise to act as army scouts in this increasingly turbulent region. But this is only the beginning. For when the acclaimed British hero, General Wolseley, decides to lead his column against the impenetrable stronghold of the bePedi, Fonthill and Jenkins once again find themselves marching to war…  

This edition is signed, stamped and numbered.
