“Roy Macnab takes the reader through Europe – tracing the links on the Continent and in Britain with South Africa. The search has taken him on many journeys and history lives again in these fascinating pages. The Portuguese navigators come to life; he talks with people who remember Kruger’s last journey across Europe; in France he follows the steps of the Huguenots; he discovers how the children of Longueval and the villagers of Castiglione keep alive the memory of South Africa’s dead in two world wars. In Britain he takes the trail of Rhodes and Livingstone, the Prince Imperial, the Boer Generals, Baines and Fairbridge.”
