This book details the political life of F.C. Erasmus, South African Defence Minister. Although an architect of the Nationalists' post-war election victory, he was not considered a minister of the first rank and his actions reflected on extraordinary intensity of divisions within the white community that were central to the controversies that centered on the figure of Erasmus during the decade and the highly partisan conduct of his office.
