Paul Kruger. His Life and Times

Paul Kruger lives in history as the President of the Boer Republic who, at the turn of the last century,was the first to dent the pretige of the hitherto all powerful British Empire.Inevitably he lost the Boer War,but the Boer Commanders inflicted humiliating defeats on the British forces,winning the sympathy of all Europe in the process.The author brings vividly to life this strange,almost biblical figure,who was born a subject of Queen Victoria,but successfully defied her statesmen and generals for nearly a quarter of a century.
