Veevers brilliantly retells the story we thought we
knew...Important and thrilling
Underpinned by a breathtaking amount of research...a rollicking read.
An important book from an exciting voice
A provocative book which will ruffle feathers...well argued, thoroughly researched, and engagingly written
*Military History Matters*
Powerfully argues...how a colonial narrative of "they came, they saw, they conquered" erases centuries of indigenous (and enslaved) agency...This wide-ranging book will hopefully shift Britain's toxic public debate about empire
