Read full description of the books:



One of Churchill's best-known books -- his eyewitness account of the Boer War.

On October 12, 1899 the first shots of the Boer War were fired at Kraaipan. Winston Churchill left his regiment the 4th Hussars, in the spring of that year, but was eager to be back in action. He wasted no time getting hired as a war correspondent for The Morning Post, and sailed from Southampton aboard the Dunottar Castle on October 14, reaching Cape Town by October 31st.

For the next eight months he filed regular despatches to The Morning Post. His articles were later printed as two
comparatively short books -- London to Ladysmith via Pretoria and Ian Hamilton's March. They have since been published together as one book under the title, The Boer War.

Churchill's unique style paints a vivid and dramatic picture of the conflict, and the problems confronting the long untried British Army in their fight against the Boers' determined resistance.
