Scramble for Africa. The Great Trek to the Boer War.


This is the dramatic story of the scramble by the European powers,and in particular England,for power and influence in Africa during the nineteenth century.The Dutch had been in Africa since the sixteenth century and the Portuguese,with their missionary settlements,long before that.The British did not arrive till the period of the Napoleonic wars,when the possibility of a hostile French presence at the Cape was not one which England could lightly overlook,for Holland had joined France in declaring war against her.A fascinating history.
