The Boer War

by Pakenham, Thomas

The war declared by the Boers of South Africa on October 11, 1899, gave the British, as Kipling said, 'No end of a lesson.' The public expected it to be over by Christmas. It proved to be the longest, the costliest, the bloodiest and most humiliating war that Great Britain fought between 1815 and 1914.
