(Subject: Colonial & Other Wars ) This major work has long been recognised as one of the most important books written on the Anglo Boer War. Whilst working as a surgeon with British forces Conan-Doyle spent much of his time questioning British and Boer wounded in the field hospitals. He spoke to soldiers ranking from generals to cavalry troopers and, with a meticulous eye for detail, produced this balanced account showing the viewpoints of both protagonists. First published in October 1900, this 19th edition is recognised as the final complete work from which this volume has been reproduced as a facsimile reprint.
