This is an auction for PRIVATE TUCKER'S BOER WAR DIARY, compiled by Pamela Todd & David Fordham.

The Transvaal War of 1899, 1900, 1901, & 1902 with the Natal Field Forces.

From the dust jacket:

"The Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902, ‘The Last of the Gentleman’s Wars’, was fought at the height of British Imperialism yet it took the vast force of the British Army three years of fighting, three monumental sieges, and myriad battles with considerable loss of life, to overwhelm the Boers and achieve victory. The story of this war, its battles, its personalities, its tragedies, the strengths and deficiencies on both sides, is presented in this book in a uniquely vivid way, seen through the eyes of a soldier at the front, writing in his diary in the trenches at night, while a parallel commentary supported by hundreds of photographs, maps, cartoons, poetry and ephemera records he history of the war as it was being fought elsewhere. As the diary chronicle’s one man’s isolated war so the parallel commentary supplies the reader with a more comprehensive guide to the war . . . Illustrated with rare, fascinating and varied material this is an entertaining, informative and original approach to an often cumbersome subject, offering the reader a unique opportunity to appreciate the many diverse facets of wartime.”
