It marked the beginning of Apartheid, and decades of uninterrupted rule by the fascistic National Party. It took years of effort, and the sacrifice of many lives, for South Africa to become free. Our Free And Happy Land askes the question: what if the National Party had lost in 1948?
Read along as Adolph Malan fights a bitter civil war, Steve Biko engages in Cold War diplomacy, and Thabo Mbeki faces down striking coal miners, in an alternate history about a free and democratic South Africa.
