This biography of F.C. Erasmus looks at the events that shaped this period of South African history in an attempt to correct misinterpretations of these critical years. F.C. Erasmus became the Union of South Africa's Defence Minister in 1948. Although Erasmus was an architect of the Nationalist's post-war election victory, he was not a first rank minister. Erasmus initiated a process of ridding the Defence Force of officers whom he believed were associated with the government of Jan Smuts. He replaced them with supporters of his own party. Erasmus inaugurated tighter regulations on bilingualism, introduced Boer rank titles, to the acclaim of the Afrikaner Volk. His purpose was to have a defence force which was uniquely South African.
