Last Horseman by Gilman David
South Africa 1900. The search for his missing son takes Joseph Radcliffe from the streets of Dublin smouldering with rebellion to the trackless veld of South Africa and the bloody brutality of the Anglo-Boer War. As a former cavalryman in the US army Radcliffe is no stranger to war but 800 miles north of Cape Town under fire from Boer commandos and distrusted by the British forces he will find his survival skills tested to the hilt. The Last Horseman is an epic tale of heroism and treachery love and loyalty set against the backdrop of a conflict that shook an empire to its core.
