'This book outlines the course of the war, through the formal first stages to the guerrilla struggle of the 'bitter enders'. Finally it focuses on individual aspects of the war that are often overlooked in a more general approach, The pictorial element and the text engage in a particularly vital interplay, to illuminate the social complexities of a unique and prophetic war. Here are Boer life on commando, the British Tommy's experience of a hostile veld, and the role of blacks in the warfare - an aspect till recently unprobed.' Editor's note.
