" Provides a helpful starting point for those continuing with the investigation of one of Africa"s largest and most complex military campaigns."

- Army Historical Research

"Excellent volume... a work that offers some original themes and revisions rather than presenting the same old story in different words

- Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History

"a remarkable collection of essays covering neglected aspects of the Boer War... It is unusual for a work of collected papers such as this to be so uniformly excellent and informative. The Boer War is a monument to the scholarly expertise of Gooch and his contributors and a "must-purchase" for all students of this tragic conflict.
