Manfred De La Ray and Shasa Courtney, sons of Centaine de Thiry, were blood enemies from their very first boyhood encounter. Caught up in the tumult of South Africa's histroy through two decades, they found themselves adversaries in an age-old war of savagery to seize the sword of power in their land. Sweeping from the teeming goldfields of the highland to the secret citadels of Afrikaner power, from the clamouring stadiums of Hitler's Berlin Olympics to the raging war over Abyssinia, their story was to become a rich, thrilling adventure, an epic saga of rivalry and revenge, of winners and losers in a struggle where only the ruthless survived.Hide synopsis

For me reading fiction is therapeutic and it works well when a book is intensely interesting. Power of the Sword is a fascinating, epic read. The South African setting is in itself exotic enough to add a great deal of interest to the narrative. The characters are somewhat larger than life, but that only adds to the book's intensity. And the plotting is intricate and twisting enough to tie it all together.
As with the other Wilbur Smith books I have read this one is a satisfying read.
