A White Man's War - An Historical Novel of the Boer War and Mafeking
by Graham Watkins
Themba Jabulani is sentenced to death, by firing squad, for stealing a kid goat. His crime; trying to save his family from starving. The railway yards at Mafeking, surrounded by 6000 Boer commandos, are the key to communications between Bulawayo and Kimberley. This is a war with strange rules. A war where innocents will be sacrificed and heroes made.
