about

1899—40,000 Boer farmers declare war on the British Empire, defeat the most experienced regular army of the day, and make it a capital offence to shoot a British general.

It was the last of the Gentlemen’s Wars and the first of the modern wars. But for the blood-stained lesions Learned on the veld, 1914 might well have ended in defeat.

‘An excellent book’—British Army Review

‘Admirable…with an intimate picture of many of the commanders involved, of the notorious actions in the First two years of the war: Belmont, Modder River, Magersfontein, Colenso, Spion Kop’—The Observer

‘Baring Pemberton has made lively use of unpublished letters, diaries und suchlike evidence…critical and fair’—Irish Times
