Was Herman Charles Bosman, one of South Africa's greatest short-story writers, a Khaki or a Boer? Did he have one foot in the laager and one foot in the blockhouse?
Tim Sandham examines Bosman Boer War stories in an attempt to reveal the true Herman Charles Bosman, the master of satire who during a short stay in the Greater Magaliesberg, created characters whose popularity will forever remain part of our culture.
Tim Sandham is a TV-writer who has written three plays on Bosman: Oom Schalk Strikes Back; The Great Bosman Quiz, and Bosman & Mynhardt: A Tribute. He also co-authored A Bosman Companion which is the definitive guide to HC Bosman
