Watch the book trailer for Seven Votes: How WWII Changed South Africa Forever by Richard Steyn
More about the book!
If a mere seven more MPs had voted with Prime Minister JBM Hertzog in favour of neutrality, South Africa’s history would have been quite different.
In Seven Votes, Richard Steyn explores how World War II upended South Africa’s politics, ruining attempts to forge white unity and galvanising opposition to segregation among African, Indian and coloured communities.
What would South Africa have been like today, had those seven MPs voted against joining the war?
