2 PAKENHAM, THOMAS The Boer War
New York Random House 1979 0394427424 / 9780394427423 First American Edition Hard Cover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
Xxxii, 718, [1] pages, 16 plates, maps, cloth, shelf wear to dust jacket otherwise very good. From the dust jacket: Thomas Pakenham has constructed a narrative as vivid and fast moving as a novel. In many ways he challenges the accepted views of historians. He exposes the crucial role of two of the "Gold Bugs" (the richest of the Rand millionaires) in precipitating the war. He throws new light on the blunders of the British generals, Buller and Roberts, revealing a personal feud between the men comparable to the one between Lords Lucan and Cardigan that led to the Charge of the Light Brigade during the Crimean War. He writes movingly about the plight of the 100,000 black Africans who served both armies, and he explains the final political victory of the Boers--how they lost the war but won the peace--had far-reaching consequences, not only for Europe and South Africa, but for the world today." ; 718 pages
