9780857065759: With the Boers: a Journalist's Experiences of the Anglo-Boer War From the Boer Perspective

War with the Boer forces

The Boer War was the last major war of the Victorian age for the British Army and, perhaps more significantly, it was the last conflict that could be said to have its foundations in the practice of warfare as it had been fought for almost 500 years. The wind of change was nevertheless blowing across the South African veldt, for the citizen army of the Boers was employing new, state of the art weaponry-both small arms and artillery-which surpassed in quality and efficiency that of the British. Boer commando fighting was a comparatively new tactic which required major adjustment by the huge and slow moving military machine that the British Army had become. The Boers not only understood considerable difference the vital logistical apparatus of their age, including the railway system, could make to warfare, but also how to effectively neutralise it when used by their enemies. The author of this book was a newspaper correspondent who elected to view this conflict from the Boer side of the lines. Hillegas' is not an especially partisan view, though he finds much to admire in the Boers, and his book enables those interested in this war to understand it from all perspectives. Recommended.
