£43.00

This volume deals with correspondence between the Governor of the Cape Colony,Sir Henry Pottinger,and the Commander of the British forces at the Cape,Sir George Berkeley.The documents in this volume concern the second and final phase of the war of 1846–1847,known as the seventh frontier war ,or the War of the Axe,fought in what is now Ciskei and eastern Cape.The War of the Axe,fought by the impoverished Xhosa people against the British,has suffered more neglect by military and other historians,than has any of the major conflicts on the eastern Cape frontier.I think you will find this volume should fill in some of the gaps.
