Invictus : Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made a Nation - By : John Carlin

Invictus : Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made a Nation -

Beginning in a jail cell and ending in a rugby tournament the true story of how the most inspiring charm offensive in history brought South Africa together.

After being released from prison and winning South Africa s first free election, Nelson Mandela presided over a country still deeply divided by fifty years of apartheid. His plan was ambitious if not far-fetched: use the national rugby team, the Springboks long an embodiment of white-supremacist rule to embody and engage a new South Africa as they prepared to host the 1995 World Cup. The string of wins that followed not only defied the odds, but capped Mandela s miraculous effort to bring South Africans together again in a hard-won, enduring bond.
