Valiant GentlemenBook - 2016 | First edition
Humanitarian and Irish patriot Roger Casement and his closest friend Herbert Ward spent a misadventurous youth in the Congo, witnessing acts of cannibalism, among other things. Ward married Argentinian-American heiress Sarita Sanford, and they established a flourishing family life in France. Casement's covert homosexuality and nomadic lifestyle kept him floating between his work across the African continent and involvement in Irish politics. When World War I broke out, Casement and Ward's longstanding political differences finally come to a head, leading to results both tragic and riveting.
