There Should Have Been Five

Length: 144 pages14 hours


1942, Tobruk Harbour. Job Maseko is taken prisoner by General Rommel along with 33 000 Allied troops.
But unlike most POWs, Job did not accept that he was powerless. “We don’t have to give up just because we’re POWs. Hitler must not win this war!” Job said before he did something so significant, ingenious and courageous that he won a medal. He should have been the fifth South African to be awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest military decoration for members of the armed forces of British Empire territories.
There Should Have Been Five is based on the true story of Job Maseko MM, a South African hero of World War II who was almost forgotten for fifty years.
