Fascinating insight into Breaker Morant and the question of morality and human life.

Paperback published 2003-01-04 in United States by Random House Australia. Fascinating insight into Breaker Morant and the question of morality and human life. The question of "The Breaker's" innocence is still being fiercely debated more than a century after Lieutenant Harry Morant and Lieutenant Peter Handcock were shot on a lonely veldt outside Pretoria at dawn on 27 February, 1902, by a British military firing squad.

The question is still being fiercely debated more than a century after Lieutenant Harry Morant and Lieutenant Peter Handcock were shot on a lonely veldt outside Pretoria at dawn on the 27th February, 1902, by a British military firing squad. No current Talk conversations about this book. I first learnt about Harry 'Breaker' Morant through the movie, so it was great to finally listen to this book. I learned a lot more about the Boer war and Australia's involvement.

When The Breaker is booked for the south As the Australians closed in, the emotional Morant began shooting too early and they . Other killings followed.

When The Breaker is booked for the south. H. Morant 'Breaker' leaves with . Glenrowan' to 'The Breaker' As the Australians closed in, the emotional Morant began shooting too early and they lost the element of surprise, so most of the Boers escaped. They did, however, capture one commando named Visser, wounded in the ankles so that he could not walk.

Shoot Straight, You Bastards. The Truth Behind the Killing of Breaker Morant. Narrated by: Peter Hosking, Peter Byrne. Length: 19 hrs and 24 mins. Categories: History, 20th Century.

The movie was outstanding and it gives you an idea of who is who in the book as well as the basic story. I'm not sure the book would have captured my attention as much as it did if I had not seen it. This book is outstanding. All the background of the Breaker is here. He was an interesting bloke (Pom) and I think he and I could have shared a pint or two minus a hundred years or so. I found out here that in Australia there is still a marker where Harry jumped a fence on his horse! In my opinion the great mistake Harry made was in admitting that he ignored orders to shoot prisoners until his friend Captain Hunt was killed. In doing so he showed that he knew the orders he received were wrong, but only followed them when emotions of revenge took over. Of course the end of this trial was a foregone conclusion prior to its commencement. An interesting life well documented here.

Very well written story (true) about the Bushveldt Carbineer's during the Boer War.

It was such a interesting read, that fully captured the life and times of Breaker Morant.

Really worth the time

Written as if he was thinking off the top of his head! Rehash after rehash! Took forever to get poor Harry to Africa, kept going back over the fact his father never accepted him. Then brushed through the facts of the case against them. Lastly at the end of the book, another rehash of all the previous material. A chapter supposedly containing "new" information....did not!

Whilst a bit repetitive the argument put forward was convincing. The pieces constructed by the author are well highlighted with italics so I was well aware these were not necessarily historically accurate. I am convinced that Morant's trial process was a farce even though he did kill Boers ( which he admitted)

More than a biography of Harry 'Breaker' Morant, which it is, this book is a fairly good history of a little written about aspect of the Boer War. Most of the British command were fresh from their India campaign where the enemy was comparatively under equipped and poorly lead. The British were not really up to the reality of well lead, well organized, well equipped and highly motivated Boer guerrilla fighters. It was unfortunate that many of the British failures were blamed on the Australian volunteers. That said it is fairly easily understood why and how it was that Morrant and Handcock were courts marshalled and executed.

The author mixes in fictional conversation and events which at first I found a bit disturbing but I quickly adjusted and actually came to welcome them.

The book lacks an index, which I really detest and some more editing would have been welcome as sometimes it is difficult figuring out 'who said what.'

The book can be had at a more reasonable price (including shipping) from 'down under' rather than from 'The States.'
The book suffers from being written from not being written for purists, i.e. those who stick to the truth. Wikipedia describes it as "a trap for the unweary".

I found the reliance on fiction to justify the shooting of prisoners very dishonest, especially since the cover claims the book to be "non-fiction" and being "the truth behind the killing of "Breaker Morant"". Random House did its credibility harm by giving this book "non-fiction" status.

Since no one is making heroes out of German SS soldiers and officers who executed Jews, it is difficult to understand why a proud country like Australia wants to search so hard for heroes. Morant was an Englishman and a British officer, an unlikely Australian hero.

The book is not worth reading, for the facts read:
Arthur Davey's, 1987, Breaker Morant and the Bushveldt Carbineers.
Kit Denton's, 1983, Closed File, and
M. Carnegie and Frank Shields, 1979, In Search of Breaker Morant - Baladist and Bushveldt Carbineer
