Boer War - South Africa - 1902
Canadian Lt. Harry Lanyard, British Army, leads a mounted patrol of hard-bitten Colonial troopers into the veld to recover $15-million worth of gold bullion looted by Transvaal President Paul Kruger during the Second Anglo-Boer War.
To do it, Lanyard must battle tough burgher commandos, murderous bandits, hostile civilians, and an enemy spy sworn to kill him, while his own men have turned mutinous. He also strives to regain the love of his Boer ex-sweetheart who now is allied with a ruthless Czarist secret agent.
Based on many actual events, KRUGER’S GOLD is meticulously researched in historical details. It reveals the horrors of concentration camps and ruthless guerilla fighting, while innocent civilians and black Africans suffer during the “last of the gentlemens’ wars”.
