Breaker Morant was executed at Pietersburg on 27 February 1902. His crime was the wilful murder of civilians, yet to this day his guilt remains in doubt. Full of action and set in three continents, The Breaker covers the entire range of Morant's activities. We see him as a champion horseman, a likeable larrikin, a popular balladist. We see him in love and in war. We see him face the firing squad that will end his life. Was he a cold-blooded killer or a scapegoat?
