The Boer Fight for Freedom: From the Beginning of Hostilities to the Peace of Pretoria.
by (Boer War) Davitt, Michael.

Publisher Information:
Funk & Wagnalls Co, New York: 1902.

A Very Good copy with gold and multi color stamping to the front board and spine without dust jacket; a bright, tight copy with foldout map. The two Boer Wars (1880-1902) pitched British colonial forces against the Dutch Boer settlers in the region of Africa today known as South Africa. The conflict concerned the discovery of gold in the region which threatened to destabilize British control with Germany stalking in the wings; conditions were worsened with Dutch abusive treatment of immigrant gold miners. The British stepped in to regain control and the ensuing warfare took the lives of over 40,000 men, women and children.
