description

In this thrilling graphic novel,Nelson Mandela''s fight against racism is about to spiral into an all-out race war. Unless he can win over his archenemy, the white supremacist General Viljoen, the democratic struggle for equality and justice in South Africa will end in "the peace of graveyards."

"Intense."--Booklist
"A riveting read."--Morgan Freeman
"Fascinating."--Library Journal,starred review

As the first post-apartheid elections approach in 1994, with South African blacks poised to take power, the nation''s whites fear reprisal. White nationalist militias claiming 50,000 well-armed former soldiers stand ready to fight to the death to defend their cause. They need someone who can lead and unite them. That man is General Constand Viljoen, former chief of apartheid South Africa''s military.

Mandela knows that he can''t avert a bloodbath on his own.He will have to count on his archenemy. Throughout those historic months, the two men meet in secret. Can they trust each other? Can they keep their followers and radical fringe elements from acts of violence? The mettle of these two men will determine the future of a nation.

The drama of this contest and the history that pivoted on it comes vividly to life in visual form. Veteran British journalist John Carlin teams up with Catalan artist Oriol Malet to create a historically and artistically rich graphic novel with obvious relevance to today''s polarized politics.
