The objective of this site is to make available information on the Anglo Boer War 1899 - 1902 and to provide a forum for discussion of the many aspects of this conflict.
The site is owned by David Biggins, author of three books on the Boer War.
The site is free to use and has grown over the years since it was started by David and his brother Chris in 2004. It currently consists of over 2,500 articles, in excess of 11,000 images and more than 12,500 pages in searchable PDF format.
The site is arranged into several main sections:
- Biographical information on the people who were involved in the Boer War
- Details of the medals awarded for the Boer War and other contemporary and South African campaigns
- Information on the Imperial, Colonial, South African and Boer units that participated
- The full text of over 70 Boer War books
- Information on David's current and future publications and research projects
- On-line shop
