Murder or justice? This question is still being fiercely debated a century after Lieutenant Harry 'Breaker' Morant and Lieutenant Peter Handcock were shot on a lonely veldt outside Pretoria at dawn on 27 February 1902, by a British military firing squad. They were found guilty by court martial of murdering Boer prisoners. In popular vernacular 'shoot straight' means 'tell the truth'. The lies, deceit and political skulduggery behind these executions are exposed here for the first time

The Breaker: a novel by Kit Denton( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There was a Breaker Morant - he was executed at Pietersburg on 27 February 1902. His crime? Willful murder of civilians. Yet to this day his guilt remains in doubt. Kit Denton's bestselling 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 this man of enterprise and imagination also a cold-blooded killer? Or was he a scapegoat?
