Book Description

On October 11th,1899 long-simmering tensions between Britain and the Boer Republics - the OrangeFree State and the Transvaal Republic - finally erupted into the conflict thatwould become known as the Second Boer War. Two days after the first shots werefired, a young writer by the name of Winston Churchill set out for South Africato cover the conflict for the Morning Post.
 
The Boer War brings together the two collections of despatchesthat Churchill published on the conflict. Londonto Ladysmith recounts the future Prime Minister's arrival in South Africaand his subsequent capture by and dramatic escape from the Boers, the adventurethat first brought the name of Winston Churchill to public attention. Ian Hamilton's March collects Churchilllater despatches as he marched alongside a column of the main British army fromBloemenfontein to Pretoria. Published together, these books are a vivid eye-witness account of a landmark period in British Imperial History and an insightful chronicle of a formative experience by Britain's greatest war-time leader.
