Summary

This expanded and updated edition draws on new scholarly writing since the centenary of the war. Nasson explores how the Anglo-Boer War shaped South Africa's future and how it has come to be remembered in a post-apartheid South Africa. When historian Bill Nasson describes battle scenes from the Anglo-Boer War, it is as if you can hear the bullets fly past. Nasson provides a gripping overview of the war and integrates the military, political and social dimensions of a war that continues to fascinate.
