When the Great War came, however, both were reconciled to their former foes, and became ardent warriors against Germany and for the Empire they had once fought. This book relates the duos successful campaign to conquer the neighbouring German colony of South-West Africa (todays Namibia) from their native South Africa.

Later in the war, Smuts would command operations with far less success - against that guerilla genius General von Lettow-Vorbeck in German East Africa ( todays Tanzania). Both Botha and Smuts would end their careers as firmly pro-British elder South African statesmen.
