The Boer War

By Pakenham, Thomas




The war declared by the Boers of South Africa on October 11, 1899, gave the British, as Kipling said, 'No end of a lesson.' The public expected it to be over by Christmas. It proved to be the longest, the costliest, the bloodiest and most humiliating war that Great Britain fought between 1815 and 1914.

"Thomas Pakenham has written the first full-scale documentary history of the war to be attempted since 1910. His narrative is based on first-hand and largely unpublished sources. He has combed the original British documents in teh Public Record Office and the material in South African archives. He has traced the private papers of most of the protagonists. He found the letters of Sir Redvers Suller - the British Commander-in-Chief in 1899 - letters which had remained hidder under the billiard table at Buller's house in Devon. He has unearthed new material from teh trunk-loads of Lord Robert's papers, discovered a massive secret journal of the war compiled by the War Office Intelligence Department, and found the private letters from teh War Minister, Lord Lansdowne and other members of the Cabinet... He writes movingly about the plight of the 100,000 black Africans who served both armies. And he explains the final political victory of the Boers - how they lost the war but won the peace - with far-reaching consequences for Europe and South Africa." - DJ flaps.
