New book, 48 pages, MAA303. On 11 October 1899 the Second Boer War between the British and the Boers began. The war saw the most powerful professional army in the world pitted against the unconventional tactics of the undisciplined Boers. Although the Boers were finally forced to surrender in May 1902 the war had taken its toll on their opponents who lost some 8,000 troops killed in action with a further 13,000 dying from disease. This book covers the organisation, uniforms and very different tactics involved in the conflict, from guerrilla warfare to a final war of attrition that the Boers could not hope to win. Covers: Boer Forces in 1899, The British Army in 1899, Tactical Differences, The Conventional War, The British Army 1900-1901, Boer Forces 1900-1902, The Myth of the 'White Man's War', The Bitter End.
