When the mighty English empire is challenged by a tiny rebellion in the far corner of the world, four unforgettable characters are set on a collision course that will shape not just their own lives, not just the course of history, but the destiny of the world.
The Boer War in South Africa set the ground rules for the shape of the 20th Century. At a moment when nationalism, racism and the role of the media to shape our politics are being defined, on a battlefield where identity, sexuality and modern notions of warfare are being negotiated, the lives of a black freedom fighter, a Dutch rebel, a pioneering American filmmaker and a young, swaggering Winston Churchill intersect in epic but intimate stories of love, war and personal ambition that will light a fuse leading directly to the present moment.
