"The Boer War of 1899-1902 symbolized Britain's towering Imperial status and at the same tim e exposed potentially crippling weaknesses in her military machine. It marked both the apotheosis of her late-nineteenth-century Imperial expansion, and also its collapse. Like all wars, it promoted legends and convenient national myths a n d p a i d s cant respect to the truth....In his sensitive and scholarly account, Denis Judd is not concerned with partisanship. He recognizes the extraordinary courage and resourcefullness of the stoic Afrikaner farming community who, against al l od d s, c ar ri e d on an eighteen-month guerrilla campaign after the war seemed to be over. Dr. Judd above all deals clearly and vividly with the complex issues, stirring events and varied personalities that go to make up the Boer War."
