About this book

Ons oorlog (ePub) | Historical & Mythological Fiction

Klaas Steytler


 A contemplation of the Anglo Boer War based on real experiences, among others those retold from one generation to the next in the author’s own family. A moving image of the complexity and unavoidable sorrow of war is presented with lucid simplicity.

Klaas Steytler died in 1998. This last “testament” of his relates of struggle and almost unbearable grief, but also of a quest to understand the past; of the influence of previous generations on their descendants, and of eventual reconciliation.

“The author has once more demonstrated the mastery of the epic that made his novel In die somer van ’36 such a remarkable book.” Petra Müller
