I've wanted to read this book ever since seeing the movie Breaker Morant decades ago. The nook version finally gave me the chance. Witton tells the story of his adventures in the second Boer War, including his version of events related in the movie. The book is written in a matter-of-fact style, more like a diary than a novel. Witton is no Shakespeare, but I enjoyed the book very much both as a coming-of-age story and for the rich detail of everyday life during the period. If you haven't seen the movie Breaker Morant, I suggest watching it first. It is also richly detailed and pretty faithful to the facts (although it speculates on a few points where history is silent).
