The War in South Africa - 1900 The War in South Africa - 1900

Ref: CA0011
ISBN:
or "Thrilling Experiences in the War in South Africa - 1900"

A terrific book for anyone wanting to get the flavour and background of the Boer war without having to read through a more conventional "history." This book is more like a Tabloid account of the war, relying as much on captioned pictures as it does on the written story. While reporting the war from beginning to end this book pays particular attention to the contribution made by the Canadian forces.
