Few men have managed to acquire an international reputation on three separate occasions during their lives, in three different parts of the world. Roger Casement did. Born near Dublin in 1864, and brought up in an Ulster Protestant family, he worked as one of H.M. Stanley's volunteers in the newly created Congo Free State; served for a time as British Consul in Lourenco Marques and St. Paul de Loanda; and then, in 1904 presented a report which showed how the Congo Free State, far from being the model colony Leopold II of Belgium had claimed to be founding, was a ruthless commercial enterprise run with unrelenting cruelty for Leopold's profit.
