About this book:

When Robert McBride was sentenced to death, he shouted: ‘The struggle continues till Babylon falls.’ It was 1987: the time of ‘total onslaught’. The trial of the MK unit that planted the Magoo's bomb on Durban's beachfront dominated the news but few knew the real story of the brave young people who brought the armed struggle to Natal. This is the forgotten, thrilling tale of a young man’s incredible sacrifice for the struggle, loyalty between friends and falling in love across the race barrier.

Readers say

‘A story thick with tension between love and violence, newly relevant for our complex times.’

Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh


‘Robert McBride’s story embodies the story of South Africa: painful, hopeful and resilient. This is an important and incredible read.’

Qaanitah Hunter


‘A political thriller, biography and historic record all rolled into one.’

Marianne Thamm
