The Great Boer War by Arthur Conan Doyle
This major work by a noted writer like Arthur Conan Doyle has long been
recognised as one of the most important books written on the Anglo Boer War.
While working as a surgeon with British forces he spent much of his
free time questioning British and Boer wounded in the field hospitals
gaining first hand accounts of the battles they had fought in.
In addition he spoke to soldiers ranking from generals to cavalry troopers.
With a meticulous eye for detail he produced his stunningly balanced account
that shows the viewpoints of both protagonists.
