No Outspan: A Boer Journal of Life after the War

Deneys Reitz believed that South Africa’s safety lay with the Commonwealth, and its people’s unity was only attainable under its shelter, and on his return in 1919 he entered the political arena, joining Smuts’ South African Party.

With the outbreak of WWII and Hertzog’s bid for neutrality failing, Reitz found himself appointed Smuts’ Deputy Prime Minister: his subsequent journeyings and encounters were no less extraordinary than any that had come before.

Concluding the narrative of an extraordinary life, No Outspan recounts Reitz’s colourful adventures and endeavours as the long-drawn political struggle for South Africa continued.
