Expanded and Updated: The War for South Africa by Bill Nasson
When historian Bill Nasson describes battle scenes from the Anglo-Boer War, it is as if you can hear the bullets fly past. Nasson provides a gripping overview of the war and integrates the military, political and social dimensions of a war that continues to fascinate.
The War for South Africa was first commissioned by Arnold for their ‘Modern Wars’ series and published in the UK in 1999, but never published locally. This expanded and updated edition draws on new scholarly writing since the centenary of the war. Nasson explores how the Anglo-Boer War shaped South Africa’s future and how it has come to be remembered in a post-apartheid South Africa.
