I enjoy memoir because it usually takes you away from dry recitations of facts and lets you experience history thru the the thoughts and remembrances of people who were there It gives history an added layer of humanity and reality I ve read just a little about the Boer war A Henty book years ago perhaps and a book on Churchill s experiences Reitz pronounced rates was a older teen when the conflict started He grew up hunting and riding horses and his experience stood him and his companions in good stead against the British who they often outshot because of their superior marksmanship He tells of the early days of the conflict where armies faced off against each other in typical European style and then once the Boer s got the worst of that they moved to guerrilla tactics because of the significant numerical superiority the British had The author relates a number of battles where people around him were killed or injured including friends and fellow soldiers of long experience He talks about their desperate movements around the country trying to stay one step ahead of the superior enemy troops and how they slipped around them and moved into the Cape Town part of the country behind enemy lines and the success those forces had there Many incidents of courage and daring are related All in all an entertaining and educational book My copy is the Folio Society edition from 1982 Excellent condition and very well put together slip cased book
