Battles of The Boer War.


In 1899 40,000 Boer farmers declared war on the British Empire.The Boers,who dispenced with conventional formations and elaborate supply trains,and who were too unprofessional to accept unnecessary losses,inflicted a series of humiliating reverses on the most experienced regular army of the day.The book describes the events of the major battles fought in that war.Ladysmith. Kimberly. Mafeking. Belmont. Modder River,Magersfontein. Colenso and Spion Kop.Makes fascinating reading.
