Overview

Originally published in 1900, The Great Boer War is a nonfiction account of the Boer War fought in South Africa between the British army and Dutch settlers known as Boers. The book was published in sixteen editions during the prosecution of the war, constantly updated with more accurate data and records of those killed, lending it an urgency akin to battlefield journalism.

The Great Boer War is an excellent resource for historians and anyone wishing to know more about this often-neglected episode in British history.

Scottish surgeon and political activist SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE (1859-1930) turned his passions into stories and novels, producing fiction and nonfiction works sometimes controversial (The Great Boer War, 1900), sometimes fanciful (The Coming of the Fairies, 1922), and sometimes legendary (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, 1892).
