After his return from the war in the Sudan, McGuire had expected to spend time recovering with his family. It was not to be, and his regiment is called urgently to South Africa to counter the threat from the Boers. Disparaged as mere farmers the Boers were to administer a savage lesson to the British Army.

What was your inspiration for this book?
The previous book in this trilogy (No Road to Khartoum) took my hero, Michael McGuire, to the Sudan to fight the warriors of the Mahdi. In doing my research for that book I found that the regiment he belonged to were drafted to the Boer War almost as soon as they returned to Cairo, so of course my hero had to go with them.
