This is Chapter 9 - The emergence of professional cameramen - of an unknown (to me) book, or perhaps thesis? Does anyone recognise the contents? It came up in a search for something else.

Berenice,

Yes, I think we have seen other chapters from this thesis in the past. It is from Utrecht University.

There are 43 Boer War articles in the university repository.

Filming, faking and propaganda: The origins of the war film, 1897-1902
Bottomore, S.

Date issued 2007-05-24

The origins of the war film, 1897-1902 In this thesis I present the first detailed treatment of war and early cinema, describing the representation of conflicts in film from the Greco-Turkish War of 1897 through the Spanish-American War, Boer War, and others up to about 1902. I show that in attempting to cover these events, early filmmakers faced a difficult task, for warfare at the end of the nineteenth century was changing, relying more on defence and concealment and less on highly visible offensives; there was also increasing regulation and censorship of reporting. With the new tactics making battle less visible, and with increasing official controls, how could wars be represented on film? Surprisingly, in just half a decade, filmmakers found ways to cope, by developing new 'genres' of films such as acted fakes, and new exhibition strategies, and in these ways managed to present wars to the public of the time fairly effectively.
