The Tame Khaki

When love and loyalties collide

South Africa – 1899 to 1902

It’s 1899. A young English officer, Jack Whitelaw, leaves hearth, home and is lovely English rose to join his new battalion and help see off the Boer commandos which have invaded The Natal Colony. The challenges he faces prove far tougher than originally envisaged, especially when he’s wounded and nursed in a Ladysmith hospital by a beautiful Dutch-speaking nurse. Rachel du Toit.

Their idyllic romance is put to a severe test when Rachel is forced to flee Ladysmith and Jack’s battalion treks around the Transvaal, fulfilling Lord Milner’s ‘scorched earth’ policy.

You’ll be fascinated as you follow the physical and emotional trials Jack experiences during the Second Anglo-Boer War.
