I'm currently on an oringal copy of "The Natal Campaign" by Bennett Burleigh circa 1900, he was the Daily Telegraph's correspondent in South Africa and had been in the Tranvaal before the war started.
He then went back to Natal and covered the advance with Buller until Val Krantz, then transferred himself to the western front with Lord Roberts.
So there is at the end a short epilogue that covers the conclusion of the campaign in Natal.
I think next up will be anything written by the American Julian Ralph, who was there as a correspondent with the Daily Mail, one of his quotes I remmember was "Mauser fire starts off with a crack, continues with the buzz of a bee and ends with a dull thud, in the ground or in ones body"
Graphic stuff in Queen Victorias day!
Thanks for your reply, I am sure that is an interesting read.
"Mauser fire starts off with a crack, continues with the buzz of a bee and ends with a dull thud, in the ground or in ones body"
That is very descriptive sentence!
"From a billow of the rolling veldt we looked back, and black columns were coming up behind us."
