The devastating war that raged on the South African veldt between 1899 and 1902 - the first of the 20th-century wars - was small in comparison with the world wars. Yet it reveals many facets of military, political, and social issues. The conflict between the British Empire and the Boer settlers was in ways a precursor to what was to come. It saw vast changes in the organization, tactics, and weapons used by the British army; had far-reaching effects on the white political structure in the country; and stimulated Afrikaner nationalism, which might partly explain the introduction of apartheid.
Historical Dictionary of the Anglo-Boer War presents the history of this conflict - also known as "the South African War," "the Boer War," and "the Transvaal War" - through a chronology, introductory essay, bibliography, and more than 600 cross-referenced dictionary entries covering a wide range of military, social, cultural, and political topics. Whether interested in reading about black involvement in the war or repatriation and compensation after the war, this reference presents the latest in research on an important conflict.
