Hans Pienaar


Nineteen-year-old Johan is enlisted in the army. When the adjutant informs him that he will be transferred to Section C in the Zambezi Valley, unfamiliar exhilaration grips him. But this is short-lived as he quickly realises he is not fit for the task at hand. As an escape, Johan spends his off weekends in Pretoria with Ben – his older cousin and the rebellious son of the general. The one fighting his own war. 

A gripping tale about the absurdity of the the South African Border War and the devastating impact on the lives of young men.
