Book Description

Description: First Edition Breaker Morant was a military officer executed by firing squad in 1902 for murdering six POW and three civilians during the Second Anglo-Boer War; and consequently enshrined as a scapegoat of callous British imperialists. Davey drawing on sources in South Africa and elsewhere, has definite or probable answers to hither-to unresolved issues and chips away at the misconceptions to provide more credible foundations. Almost impossible to find copies of the original 1907 printing, Scapegoats of the Empire was not well received by the establishment and a mysterious warehouse fire of that era has led many to conclude that the British were attempting to censor the book. Scapegoats of the Empire is a Limited Edition of 1000, this being 136. Condition: As New/Fine. Housed in a custom slipcase. Size: 250mm x 165mm
