The life of Breaker Morant - poet, horseman, mercenary...murderer? Denton's novel covers the entire range of Breaker's career stretching across three continents. The story was made into a 1980 Australian war and trial film directed by Bruce Beresford, starring Edward Woodward and Jack Thompson; the film centers around the 1902 court martial of Lieutenants Harry Morant, Peter Handcock, and George Witton - one of the first war crimes prosecutions in British military history.
