Part of Bolinda's Australian Classics series.
Winner, Best Unabridged Fiction, Audie Awards, USA.
This classic story of the injustice and horror of war inspired the internationally acclaimed Australian motion picture, Breaker Morant.
There was a Breaker Morant - he was executed at Pietersburg on 27 February 1902. His crime? Wilful murder of civilians. Yet to this day his guilt remains in doubt. Kit Denton's novel, The Breaker, does more than recount the facts and mystery surrounding Morant's death sentence. Full of action and set in three continents, it covers the entire range of the Breaker's activities. We see him as a champion horseman, a likeable larrikin, a popular balladist. We see him in love and in war. Then we see him face the firing squad that will end his life. Was he a cold-blooded killer or a scapegoat?
