De Boerenoorlog by Martin Bossenbroek

By Martin Bossenbroek

Oorsprong van de apartheid. Eerste mediaoorlog. Voorproefje van de Eerste én de Tweede Wereldoorlog. De Boerenoorlog (1899-1902) behoort tot de meest intrigerende conflicten in de moderne geschiedenis. Het verschil in prestige tussen supermacht Groot- Brittannië en de twee nietige Boerenrepublieken Transvaal en Oranje Vrijstaat, bewoond door afstammelingen van Nederlandse kolonisten, was once bizar groot. Toch moesten de Britten heel ver gaan om de oorlog te winnen, tot en met systematische terreur tegen de burgerbevolking.

De Boeren leken ten onder te gaan, als tragische helden van een afgesloten tijdperk. Maar na het verlies van de oorlog wonnen ze de vrede. Ze herschiepen Zuid-Afrika in een land van blanke meesters en zwarte knechten. Na het einde van de apartheid werden de rollen omgedraaid. Opnieuw lijken de Boeren ten onder te gaan, nu als tragische schurken. Alle aanleiding om terug te kijken op de oorlog die Zuid-Afrika verscheurde, tot op de dag van vandaag.

Martin Bossenbroek, auteur van historische klassiekers als Holland op zijn Breedst en De Meelstreep, vertelt het hele verhaal, inclusief de cruciale Nederlandse inbreng. Hij verplaatst zich in alle partijen en volgt drie kleurrijke hoofdpersonen op de voet: de Nederlandse jurist Willem Leyds, de Engelse oorlogsverslaggever Winston Churchill en de Boerencommando Deneys Reitz. Nooit eerder werd de Boerenoorlog zo compleet en zo beeldend beschreven.
