Reprint. Originally published: London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1979.

The war declared by the Boers on 11 October 1899 gave the British, as Kipling said, "no end of a lesson".

It proved to be the longest, the costliest, the bloodiest and the most humiliating campaign that Britain fought between 1815 and 1914.

Thomas Pakenham has written a full-scale history of the war, based on first-hand and largely unpublished sources ranging from the private papers of the leading protagonists to the recollections of survivors from both sides.
