Aspects of the Boer War: Boers and Horsemen

The inspiration for the Selkirk trilogy, the original diary of Private Robert Brown from Methil, Fife, is printed verbatim. The bare account is augmented by chapters that detail aspects of the war, the culture of the Boer, the amount of foreign and Imperial commitment and thumbnail sketches of British and Boer leaders. Intended as a historical background to the war, the readable style should appeal to the general reader as well as the serious military historian.
