Translation Such were the Boer warriors who tried to escape from prisoner-of-war camps during the Anglo-Boer War. Nothing would stop them from being free again: not a possible shooting death, an ocean full of sharks, the danger of jumping off a moving train or a tunnel that could fall on them.
In this book Albert Blake brings together some of the most daring escape attempts by Boer war prisoners. They are stunned by their ingenious plans to outsmart the British authorities and get away from camps in South Africa and India, but also on the islands of Bermuda, St. Helena and Ceylon.
These exciting, true stories testify to manhood and the victory of the human spirit.
