'A hero to match Sharpe or Hornblower... Rip-roaring stuff' Northern Echo

This classic military adventure will delight fans of Cornwell and Mallinson, as Wilcox takes the reader into the mind of a soldier at his finest hour...
In the fight for South Africa, who will be the first to fall? The year is 1881, and General George Pomeroy-Colley, commander of the British forces in Natal, is planning to stamp out a rebellion. He is convinced the Transvaal Boers mere farmers can pose no serious threat, but before he can advance into unknown terrain, he needs reliable information. He calls on former army captain Simon Fonthill. A veteran of the Zulu and Sekukuni campaigns, Fonthill knows the Boers should not be underestimated. After narrowly surviving a scouting mission into hostile territory, Fonthill and his servant, '352' Jenkins, are given an urgent diplomatic assignment where further danger and treachery await them. But the greatest test is yet to come. As the Queen s men and the sharp-shooting Boers converge on the imposing heights of Majuba Hill, Fonthill and Jenkins are first into the fray. If they are to break the enemy, Colley s men must hold the summit at all costs...
