Leave a comment

GB388bThemba Jabulani is sentenced to death, by firing squad, for stealing a kid goat. His crime; trying to save his family from starving. Mafeking, surrounded by 6000 Boer commandos, is the key to communications between Bulawayo and Kimberley.

Sirjoven2

It is understood that you have armed Bastards, Fingoes and Baralongs against us – in this you have committed an enormous act of wickedness…reconsider the matter, even if it cost you the loss of Mafeking… disarm your blacks and thereby act the part of a white man in a white man’s war.

Signed 

General Cronje 29th October 1899

General Cronje’s orders are clear; take Mafeking and drive the British out of Africa. Themba’s prosecutor, Colonel Baden-Powell, is no ordinary soldier and boershis defence of Mafeking will be no ordinary fight. For two hundred and seventeen days Mafeking is under siege. While seven thousand natives starve, the white garrison, outnumbered and outgunned, fight on, driven by one man’s ruthless determination to win at any price; a price thelong tom natives are going to pay. This is a war with strange rules. A war where the innocent become victims and heroes will be made. Themba Jabulani is a victim of A White Man’s War. Read more…

Hi. I’m Graham Watkins and I have spent several years researching Welsh legends and myths. It has been a wonderful project and great fun as I explored rugged mountains, mysterious castles, enchanting waterfalls and golden beaches to discover the tales that have been handed down from generation to generation. Wales is a land of mystery and being a Celtic race the Welsh are fantastic story tellers. I've collected eighty of my favourite legends together in my book 'Welsh Legends and Myths.' That’s how I started writing. My first novel 'The Iron Masters' was an historical novel set in Merthyr during the Napoleonic Wars when Merthyr Tydfil was rearming the British Empire, fortunes were being made through other's sweat and anything was possible. Today, I am a multi genre novelist, hobby farmer and explorer. It’s all been great fun and the story isn’t over yet. I've recently published 'A White Man's War,' the story of a terrible siege during which the Scouting movement was born and 'The Sicilian Defence' a novel about a young American Woman lured to Sicily to a terrible fate. All my books are listed on the books page of my website. Right now I'm working on a modern day political thriller in which terrorists, computer programmers and a big brother state fight for their very survival. Oh!
