The Boer War

Holt, Edgar

(London: Putnam, 1958). 8vo; original red cloth, lettered in gilt on spine; tinted top edge; pictorial dustwrapper; endpaper maps; pp. 317, incl. index; plates. Dustwrapper edgeworn and partially sunned, with scuff to spine panel. Very good condition. "The first of modern wars, and yet one in which old-fashioned heroics were still practised - such was the South African War of 1899 - 1902. Khaki replaced scarlet, the importance of camouflage was seen for the first time; and, by means of deadly rifle-fire, and their flexible 'commando' tactics, 50,000 Boers defied a British Army almost ten times as strong. Yet cavalry charges with lance and sabre were still carried out, and Lord Robert's son lost his life in a story-book escapade, galloping into heavy fire to rescue abandoned guns." .
