Overview

Fire Across the Veldt by John Wilcox

September, 1900. South Africa. Former captain and army scout Simon Fonthill must rejoin the British military and prove his ability as a commander, as he leads the battle to find and capture the elusive Boer leaders. Simon Fonthill, along with his wife Alice, old friend Jenkins, and tracker Mzingeli, is travelling across the continent to Pretoria to meet with General Kitchener. When their train is derailed by hostile Boer forces the quartet are forced to continue their journey on horseback, but are quickly targeted and surrounded by Boer commando leader General de Wet and his soldiers. In this most recent addition to the series by John Wilcox, former captain and army scout Simon Fonthill must rejoin the British military and prove his ability as a commander, as he leads the battle to find and capture the elusive Boer leaders. With information that the next Boer move will be to invade and attack the Cape Colony, Fonthill must race to locate and defeat the enemy forces in time.

REVIEWS

"For the rest, the novel, with its scenes of action and adventurous soldiering, should leave lovers of the Fonthill series, of which I am one, well satisfied."
