It is 1881, and General George Pomeroy-Colley, commander of the British forces in Natal, is planning to stamp out a rebellion.
He is convinced the Transvaal Boers can pose no serious threat, but he needs reliable information.

He and his servant, '352' Jenkins, agree to carry out a covert diplomatic assignment.
But the greatest test is yet to come. As the two armies converge on the heights of Majuba Hill, Fonthill and Jenkins are first into the fray.
