Description - Hamlyn History of the Boer War, 1899-1902 by David Smurthwaite
The South African, or Boer, War pitted the might of the British Empire against 80,000 Boers, and is often described as the last of the little wars. This history describes the battles and implications of the war militarily and on society with the help of extracts from letters, journals, diaries, official reports and newspaper reports written by those who were affected by the conflict. The introduction sets the political, social and military scene and the book provides summaries of the events and personalities who shaped the war.
