n Historia - Haunting images, diverse "voices"
The War at Home: Women and Families in the Anglo-Boer War, Bill Nasson and Albert Grundlingh (Eds.) : book review

Volume 59, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0018-229X



This beautifully illustrated book will appeal to a wider audience with a general interest in the Anglo-Boer War, though the volume concentrates on the experiences of women, children and families during the conflict. The haunting images tell a story about the trials and tribulations both Afrikaans and black South Africans faced in the concentration camps throughout the country and make a contribution to the history of the period in their own right. The chapters have been organised in such a way that various thematic aspects surrounding the Anglo-Boer War are systematically addressed.
