The Road to Infamy tells the grisly story of the Natal campaign of the Boer War. The wraps are a little shelf rubbed, edge worn and scuffed in places. The book is complete with all maps and plates as called for. The binding is excellent.

During the Anglo-Boer War (1899–1902) the Boer commando formed the backbone of the Boer forces. The commandos disbanded after the declaration of peace in 1902. Each commando was named after the town it was attached to (. Bloemfontein Commando). Each town was responsible for a district, divided into wards. The commando was commanded by a kommandant and each ward by a veldkornet or field cornet. The commando was made up of volunteers, all officers were appointed by the members of the commando, and not by the government.

The Boers were comprised of the combined forces of the South African Republic and the Republic of the Orange Free State. The Boer Republics declared war on 11th October 1899 and the conflict ended on 31st May 1902, a duration of 2 years and 8 months. There were three distinct phases to the War: Stage 1 - Boer offensive. At first, the Boer republican fighters were successful in three major offensives.

The Second Boer War (11 October 1899 – 31 May 1902) was fought between the British Empire and two Boer states, the South African Republic (Republic of Transvaal) and the Orange Free State, over the Empire's influence in South Africa.

This work takes the Anglo-Boer war (1899-1902) as a nexus to discover war in South Africa, Southern Africa and elsewhere as a phenomenon

This work takes the Anglo-Boer war (1899-1902) as a nexus to discover war in South Africa, Southern Africa and elsewhere as a phenomenon. It is multi- and interdisciplinary in nature and the only work that were published at the time during the centenary of the Anglo-Boer War, South African War that so daringly and widely interpreted the concept of war with the ABO as historical background. The German-born technocrat Friedrich Heinrich (Fred) Jeppe (1833–1898) is identified more than any other individual with the nineteenth-century cartography of the South African Republic (Transvaal) more.

The British Army, "with armaments and reserves
that would be insufficient for a third class
military power", was embarrassed by its poor
showing (225 surrenders) against a force of scruffy farmers (Boers)
in the Natal Campaign of 1899-1900.

After the war, so costly in men and money, a commission
was established to review the conflict to examine
the failures and correct the deficiencies. This
book skillfully weaves the proceedings of that
Commission with admirably readable narrartive to
uniquely illuminate that unfortunate episode of history,
the echoes of which can be heard yet today in
South Africa.

"What did the Commiussion achieve? It changed the
way Britain made war in the future. It changed the
structure of command. It changed the attitude of
the common soldier, and it spelt the end of the
cavalry charge...".

And it laid the groundwork for the British Expeditionary
Force of 1914, one of the finest armies in
history.

Excellent reading for the general reader of military
history, and essential for students of the Boer
War and the British Army.

Discusses the stirring, often emotional events of the Natal Campaign of the Anglo-Boer War in South Africa, when from Oct. 1899 to Feb. 1900 the British Army was pushed across the Tugela River, & heroes of the British Empire met their downfall. Bobs Roberts, George White, Redvers H. Buller, & Charles Warren had to appear before a Royal Comm. of Enquiry in London to answer why an apparently one-sided conflict could have cost so much in terms of men, money & material. This fresh investigation sheds new light on the controversial strategies, directives, opinions & reports which permeated every element of the campaign. Illustrated
