Christiaan Rudolf de Wet (7 Oktober 1854 – 3 February 1922), is gebore op die plaas Leeuwkop in die Oranje-Vrystaat. Oorspronklik opgeroep as burger met die uitbreek van die Anglo-Boereoorlog, het hy vining die rang van Generaal verwerf, en was veral bekend vir sy meesterlike guerilla taktieke. Die Britse magte kon nooit daarin slaag om hom gevange te neem nie, en het hy die bynaam “Die Ontwykende Een” gekry, en het ‘n skets in ‘n Franse koerant hom selfs uitgebeeld waar sy perd, Fleur, vlerke het soos die van die mitologiese perd Pegasus. Aan die einde van die Oorlog het hy as waarnemende president van die Oranje-Vrystaat die Vrede van Vereeniging verdrag geteken. Om uiting te gee aan sy emosies oor die Vryheidsoorlog, het De Wet later die boek “De Strijd Tusschen Boer & Brit” geskryf, wat later vertaal is in Engels as “The Three Years’ War”.

“As julle hoor dat ek oorgegee het, ontken dit, want ek sal nooit oorgee nie” –C.R de Wet

________________________________________________________________

Christiaan Rudolph de Wet (7 Oktober 1854 – 3 February 1922), was born on the farm Leeuwkop in the Orange Free State. Initially he was recruited as burgher at the start of the Anglo-Boer War, but was quickly promoted to General , in part due to his masterful use of guerrilla tactics.  The British Forces were unable to apprehend him during the course of the War, and his infamy was immortalised when he was given the nickname “The Elusive One”. A cartoon in a French newspaper at the time of the War even depicted De Wet’s horse, Fleur, as having wings similar to the mythological Pegasus. At the end of the War he signed the Peace of Vereeniging as the acting President of the Orange Free State. In order to deal with his emotions regarding the War, he published his memoirs as “De Strijd tusschen Boer & Brit”, which was later translated to English as “The Three Year’s War”.

“If you hear that I have surrendered, deny it – for I will never surrender.” – C.R de Wet
