THE KINGS SHILLING (article first published : 2005-05-6)

The East African Campaign during the First World War is the setting for Hamilton Wende's new novel, The Kings Shilling.

Recently launched by Adams Bookstores, this is a gripping story telling of the involvement of soldiers from South Africa, Britain and India - first in the military conflict and then in a secret mission deep into enemy territory. To survive, the men are drawn deep into each other's struggles with seen and unseen enemies and made to choose between duty and compassion.

Hamilton Wende is a successful journalist who has worked for the BBC and other international media organisations. South African listeners to SAFM’s The Editors might remember him as one of the featured journalists during the time when Nigel Murphy was the presenter.

His four previous books have been nominated for various awards. His previous book was Deadlines from the Edge: Images of War: The Congo to Afghanistan.
