Originally published London Heinemann,
"They were half brothers, raised in
different worlds in the same country,
and destined to be lifelong enemies.
Manfred De La Rey and Shasa Courtney,
sons of Centaine de Thiry, were blood
enemies from their very first boyhood
encounter. Caught up in the tumult of
South Africa's history during the two
decades before World War II, they found
themselves adversaries in an age-old war
of savagery to seize the sword of power
in their land"--Publisher's description.
