Jan Smuts, Man of Courage and Vision Reviews
Interesting account of Smuts which emphasises his visionary opposition to the harsh terms imposed on Germany by the Treaty of Versailles. The book repeats the interesting assertion made in RW Johnson's The Beloved Country that it anything happened to Churchill in World War Two, because of his intellectual and strategic brilliance, Smuts was to replace him at the head of the British and Commonwealth War effort.
Interesting story about a seemingly influential man in the first half of last century. His role in the disenfranchisement of blacks, coloureds and indians is for some reason missing. Writing is wooden, to the extent that it took me weeks to finish the book.
