The Diamond Frontier by John Wilcox

Another Simon Fonthill novel, sending him and Jenkins back to South Africa to help a woman they befriended in the Zulu War. This one deals with a British war against another African nation and tensions with the Afrikaaners.

Still good adventure stuff, with a nicely cynical thread in the way the main characters think of Britain's military and general imperial project.
