Product description

An account of the Boer Wars. Triggered by Cecil Rhodes' failed Jameson raid, the Anglo-Boer war started in 1898. It marked the end of the old wars of empire and the beginning of a recognizably 20th-century style of warfare including the use of concentration camps and scorched earth policies.
