Joined by blood and conviction

This book contains two first hand accounts of the Second Boer War written by a brother and sister. Each had a strong sense of their Boer identity and saw the future of at least a significant portion of southern Africa as offering a chance for their culture to create its own destiny. This made them implacable enemies of the British agenda-and of the British military might to impose it-for the region. By virtue of their sex each of the Boer siblings had to serve their people's cause in their own way. For the brother that meant joining the citizen army of the Boers and fighting 'on commando.' Dietlof van Warmelo's account gives us an interesting and graphic description of Boer warfare fought in a manner in which they were incomparable experts and which introduced the word 'commando' to our language. Johnanna ( 'Hansie' ) Brandt (formerly van Warmelo) had to fight the war in her own way, this, among other things, meant tending the sick and wounded as a nurse. This vitally interesting two-in-one volume is offered by Leonaur both in the interests of good value and to illustrate shared events from the perspective of a man and woman connected in the closest of way.
Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.
