    When I decided to read about the Boer War, I would like to buy a book which was less than 500 pages, having maps and explaining the war from the beginning I am sure this book is the best for these It guides me with a good narrative, describing the background of the Empire, the combatants and the campaigns I recommend it to everyone.

    An extremely well researched book which is very well written It explains the war from several very distinct angles foreigners, blacks, Afrikaner and uitlander etc , which adds tremendously to the overall understanding of the impact of the war It constantly surprised me e.g I never knew that many countries of the Commonwealth answered the call to fight on Britain s side The descriptions of the main battles and sieges are authoritative Well recommended.

    I have read many books on the Boer War from may different aspects I found this book well written and informative However like all history there is a tendency to try and interpret 19th and very early 20th Century thinking with a 21st Century mind set and cultural bias For this and one or two minor issues I rate it 4 5 stars.
