Summary
They are half-brothers, raised in different worlds in the same country, and destined to be lifelong enemies. Manfred De La Ray and Shasa Courtney, sons of Centaine de Thiry, have been blood enemies from their very first boyhood encounter. Caught up in the tumult of South Africa's history through two decades, they find themselves adversaries in an age-old war of savagery to seize the sword of power in their land. This astonishing story sweeps from the teeming goldfields of the highland, to the secret citadels of Afrikaner power, from the clamouring stadiums of Hitler's Berlin Olympics, to the raging war over Abyssinia.
