Tony Maxwell. South African born author of two non-fiction books. He is presently working on his first novel, Uitlander (Foreigner).

Background Information

Born and educated in South Africa, photographer Tony Maxwell travelled throughout Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Canada, the United States and Australia.

During his time in Australia, Maxwell made a number of trips to the World War Two battlefields of the South Pacific. His travels included Papua New Guinea (Kokoda Trail, Buna), the Solomon Islands (Guadalcanal), Bougainville and Tarawa. While walking the battlefields, he photographed the relics of war, the guns, tanks and aircraft rusting in the hidden jungle glades and lagoons of the South Pacific. His latest book, Pacific War Ghosts, describes his experiences visiting the battlefields.

While living in Alberta, Tony Maxwell and his son Brad produced a documentary film, The Queen's Cowboys. The film tells the story of a Canadian regiment, Strathcona's Horse, that fought in the Anglo-Boer War of 1899 to 1902. His book, Searching for the Queen's Cowboys, tells the story of their experiences in South Africa while filming the documentary.

He currently lives in Canada with his wife Wendy. 

Birth Place
Johannesburg,  South Africa
Additional Information

I am currently working on my first, full-length novel entitled Uitlander (Foreigner). It is the story of a young Canadian who travels to South Africa prior to the turn of the 19th century. When the Anglo-Boer war breaks out he joins the Boer forces and finds himself fighting on the opposite side to his younger brother who is serving with a Canadian regiment in the war.
