This article argues that links are forged between different generations of Afrikaans prose writers and their contexts by means of the images and concepts related to war that are used in P J Haasbroek's novel, <I>Oemkontoe van die nasie &lt;/I&gt; (2001). The topic is wide-ranging and complex, but only a few of aspects are mentioned here. Words and images referring to past conflicts in South Africa are significant icons and markers of an entire field of emotions, histories and symbolism that create a living intertextual framework to authericate each new narrative into which it is incorporated.
