Abstract:After an exposition of the background to German interest and Nazi activities in South Africa, this paper describes these activities that posed a real threat to the pro-Allied Smuts government in the first half of World War II. A coup d'etat, staged by the Stormjaers, an extremist group within the Ossewa Brandwag, came perilously close to destroying this government. Although the Nazi's failed in the short term, the remarkable success of the pro-Nazi or at least antiwar campaign planted a fertile seedbed for the future authoritarianism of the apartheid state.
