Shout at the devil, . 7. The silence was a blanket that lay on them all in the stupefying heat. The two headmen waited patiently. They had spoken, and now they waited for the Bwana Mkuba to reply. How many have been killed?’ Herman asked at last, and the senior of the two headmen answered. Lord, as many as the fingers of both your hands. But these are the ones of which we are certain, there may be others. We’d be under protection of the British flag. They couldn’t dare touch us – not on the high seas – not with things the way they are now between England and Germany. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37.

Proust was at the age where he had an iron-clad faith in his own sagacity, the dignity of a patriarch, and pimples. He was, in other words, nineteen years of age. It was clear to him that these native tribesmen had embarked on their present course of action for no other reason than to embarrass.

Shout at the Devil is a tense adventure novel from master of the genre, Wilbur Smith, set during the outbreak of the First World War. 'Now the seas were more awesome in their raging insanity. Each mountain of glassy grey rose high above the raft, shielding it for a few seconds from the whip of the wind, its crest blowing off like the plume of an Etruscan helmet, before it slid down, collapsing upon itself in the tumbling roar of breaking water.

A flamboyant Irish-American and an impeccable young Englishman pit their wits against the German commissioner from whose territory they make their living as game hunters and ivory poachers. The start of World War I raises their private skirmishing to violent vendetta, pursued on land and sea.

My first Wilbur Smith novel and I was pleasantly surprised. More depth, more action, more violence, and better characterization than I'd expected out of an action book written in the 1960s. "Shout at the Devil" is set in east Africa in and near the Rufiji delta just around the start of World War I. The bold, selfish, hot-tempered American O'Flynn organizes the massacre of a large elephant herd in order to collect the ivory tusks. Problem is, the herd belongs to the Germans and so the raid precipitates a deadly conflict between the two sides.

The events of the second half of the novel are actually based loosely on the story of the German light cruiser Königsberg, eventually sunk by the British in 1915. It is evident particulary during this part of the book that Smith researched details of how the Königsberg survived in the delta for as long as it did.

A great action novel to read while on vacation. The pages turn quickly and the story is informative and well-written. Also, nothing in the book is so outlandishly fictional as to not be believable.

In this novel WS. shows that he is not a historian, but author par-excellence. He is the great master on the flora. fauna l and the topography of Africa. His description of relation between whites and native Africans is in class all by it self. The book is suspenseful through the pages, with tender romance, as is one of the trademarks of WS.
The main event is true, but WS. is master of building his own fictional characters, in this book and others.
I permit me to advice other readers of the book to read the real story of The German Imperial Navy Ship Königsberg.

This is good Wilbur Smith writing. Seems like an earlier work and is slightly comic and tongue in cheek compared to some. Worth the read.

This is a typical Wilbur Smith novel that's well researched and well put together in a historical context. The story is flowing and imaginative but the I did tire of the problems with the Kindle text errors... wrong punctuation, spellings etc. they actually detracted from the enjoyment of the book. That said, overall I really enjoyed reading this book again - I still have the paperback from around 30 years ago. If you like Wilbur Smith then you'll love Shout at the Devil...

I never thought about Africa being a fun place to visit until I traveled there on a merchant ship in 2008. We went completely around Africa twice stopping in Egypt, Kenya, Mozambique, South Africa and Cameroon. I had so much fun there I went back to Kenya on a holiday when my time on the ship was over. A friend told me about Wilbur Smith and in 2009 I read all 32 books he has written on Africa and surrounding areas. I highly recommend all his books especially the ones on the Courtney family!

A great novel, in my opinion almost reaching the first tier of novels by Wilbur (Monsoon, Blue Horizon, Eye of the Tiger, When the Lion Feeds, Assegai). But Wilbur's second tier is better than 99.9% of the other books out there as far as I am concerned. I have enjoyed every book ever written by Wilbur.

Oh Mr Smith I thought I had read all of your books but fortunately I found this masterpiece held me hooked throughout until the end which froze me completely with sadness for the death of the heroes
I liked it. Historical novel characteristic of Wilbur with the usual protaganists and cruelty of the Germans of the last century. The African venue of his novels, and his familiarty with the continent by dint of birth is a great change of pace for those north of the Equator {noting that Africa is also partly north}.
I find that Smith's novels are a refreshing change of pace from our "super hero undercover black ops novels from our USA stuff", though I love them too.
Try it. You may love it.
