Harry 'Breaker' Harbord Morant (9 December 1864 – 27 February 1902) was an Anglo-Australian drover, horseman, poet, soldier and convicted war criminal whose skill with horses earned him the nickname "The Breaker". During service in the Second Boer War, Morant participated in the summary execution of several Boer prisoners and the killing of a German missionary, Daniel Heese, who had been a witness to the shootings. His actions led to his controversial court-martial and execution for murder.

Piet Joubert | South African History Online

Acted as President of the Transvaal when the territory was annexed in 1877, joined Kruger and Pretorius to take up arms against the British. He led the commando that defeated the British at Laing's Nek, Ingogo and Majuba Hill. Joubert became commandant-general of the Transvaal and managed to crush the Jameson Raid in January 1896. He died soon after besieging Ladysmith, which proved to be disasterous, as opposed to what his younger generals had urged him to do.
