to be leading the 1st South African Division in the North African Desert War against Field Marshall Erwin
Rommel’s legendary Afrika Korps. Hailed as ‘the last of the Boer
Generals’, Pienaar played an important role in defeating Rommel at the battle of El Alamein in October and November 1942. Who was this Afrikaner General who some tipped to succeed Smuts? And what happened to him?
