I am reading the books "Four Months Besieged: The Story of Ladysmith" by H.H.S. Pearse, 1900

and

"Besieged by the Boers: A Diary of Life and Events in Kimberley during the Siege" by Oliver Ashe, 1900

Both are good books detailing the daily happenings inside Ladysmith and Kimberley during the siege.

I have not found any books on the Siege of Mafeking. Books that are about what is was like living in Mafeking during the siege. Can anyone recommend a book or two on this topic?

Thanks,

Tim

You could try "Mafeking; A Diary of the Siege" by FD Baillie.
Online copy:
www.archive.org/stream/mafekingadiaryof00bail#page/n7/mode/2up
Also, "Mafeking Memories" by Frederick Saunders and "The Siege of Mafeking" by Angus Hamilton.

Cheers,

Mark
