About this book:

This book brings to life the untold story behind the release of Nelson Mandela, as revealed in previously top-secret records. Kobie Coetsee, Minister of Justice at the time, kept an archive on ‘Prisoner 913’, on which the authors – a historian and a journalist – draw to retell the story. This is history as it actually happened, as opposed to how it has been portrayed up to now, even in writings by Mandela himself. Prisoner 913 sets right the historical record.
