More about the book!
In this week’s episode of Pagecast, the podcast from Jonathan Ball Publishers, David Brock Katz discusses his latest book General Jan Smuts and His First World War in Africa, 1914–1917 with Evert Kleynhans.
Smuts’s abilities as a general have been much denigrated by his contemporaries and later historians, but he was no armchair soldier.
General Jan Smuts and his First World War in Africa provides a long-overdue reassessment of Smuts’s generalship and his role in furthering the strategic aims of South Africa and the British Empire during this era.
Pagecast offers you insider interviews with recently published authors, looking into the process of writing, exploring the narratives within and providing you with the story behind the story.
