Description
 
The outbreak of the Second Anglo-Boer War in October 1899 generated an outpouring of public enthusiasm and support both in Great Britain and throughout the British Empire. This conflict which was seen as a 'White Man's War', was also the last 'gentleman's war' in which chivalry played a role, in contrast to the mechanised slaughter of the Great War of 1914-1918.

'The Australian Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Zulu and Boer Wars' commemorates the Centenary of the Second Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902. The book contains over 640 entries and is illustrated with many photos and map. Most of the major political and military figures of the Boer War are listed, together with a description of the major battles and many minor actions.

For the first time, the role played by the Australian contingents to the Boer War is recorded in a simple easy-to-find format. In addition, the earlier Zulu and First Boer Wars are also described in some detail. 'The Australian Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Zulu and Boer Wars' provides a new reference source which focuses on the significant Australian contribution made to what was the last of the 19th Century colonial conflicts.
