Wilbur Smith’s War Cry tops SA Nielsen BookScan charts

War Cry, the fourteenth installment in Wilbur Smith’s perennial fan-favourite Courtney-series, has topped the South African Nielsen BookScan chart.

Smith’s historical novel reached the number one position in South Africa, selling more copies than Trevor Noah’s Born a Crime (#2) and the Dalai Lama’s The Book of Joy (#3).

Besides reaching number one in overall book-sales (including international titles), War Cry has also dominated the local fiction scene, securing first place in local fiction sales, as per The Bookseller.
