Abstract

Over the past few years, Ian Uys has become known as a writer of popular military history. The South African Military Who's Who, 1452-1992 is his seventh work in this field. Although in the past most of Uys' attention has been limited to the Battles of the Somme, this work is in fact his third biographical study. The first two, For Valour (1973) and Cross of Honour (1992), were biographical introductions to each of the South African recipients of the Victoria Cross and Honoris Crux awards.
