MAFEKING. The story of a seige.


It was late 1899 and war was imminent in South Africa.Colonel Baden Powell had been ordered by Britain to set up a military base in the border town of Mafeking.Psychologically affected by the fact that it was from here that the Jameson Raid was launched,the Boers were determined to regain this key town.The exceptional military leadership,indomitable spirit and personal charisma of Baden Powell made him the ideal officer for the defence.He became the ultimate source of inspiration for the defenders of Mafeking,during the epic seven-and-a- half-month siege.
