The Anglo-Boer War 1899-1902 saw the British Empire at the height of its power facing a small band of highly mobile Boers in South Africa. The war introduced the world to the concentration camp and is regarded as the first war of the modern era where magazine rifles, trenches and machine guns were deployed extensively. British losses topped 28 000 in a conflict that was supposed to take a few weeks but lasted three years.

Quality and very informative

I learned a lot about the war, chronicles full scale conventional war was once fought in northern parts of South Africa. Well recommended.

Transporting bedtime stories

Fascinating, and oddly soothing, considering the tragedy and hardships of the war. It reads like a bedtime story, perfect for Sunday night bedtimes.
