Ghosts of Africa ( Fiction)
A towering saga from the annals of World War I – the amazing novel of a man whose exploits rivaled the legend of Lawrence of Arabia, the visionary German officer they called the Lion of Africa.
Here is a hero who defies his own government and challenges the might of the British Empire, leading a daring guerilla army of German soldiers and black tribesmen who battle for the valuable wilderness in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Sworn to shatter the rule of white supremacy forever, allied to a conspiracy of idealists who seek a Jewish homeland, Lieutenant-Colonel Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck finds love with a proud, beautiful American pacifist; grapples in deadly combat with a ruthless British master spy; and launches a ravishing African princess into a course of intrigue whose outcome could tip the balance of WWI.
Praise from the critics.
“It has everything a good thriller needs to thrill – romance, violence, suspense . . . international spies. . . a gripping historical novel.
“Vivid, rich, eye-opening.”
