The First Boer War


Rated by the number of combatants involved,the fighting at Majuba Hill in 1881 was a mere skirmish.Yet few battles have had a more immediate or far reaching effect.The Boers not only won back the Transvaal from the British and made it the centre of intensified nationalist feeling,but altered the whole courseof South African history.In this definitive study of a small war,the author describes the events that culminated in a unique people confronting and confounding an empire at the hieght of its wealth and power.
