9780140072372: To the Bitter End: Photographic History of the Boer War, 1899-1902

Hostilities between Britain and the Boer republics broke out just two years after the invention of the Folding Pocket Kodak, the first camera to use "cartridge film" and that could be afforded by ordinary men, such as troops serving in foreign territories. Emmanoel Lee's interest in South Africa's history and his passion for photography are combined in this valuable pictorial history of the Boer War, which is the result of twenty years' research in Britain, South Africa, Holland and the USA. To the Bitter End emphasizes particular aspects of the Boer War - the foreign volunteers, the concentration camps, the hospital treatment and the eighteen months of fighting that went on after the war had officially ended - and matches photographic images with historical documents to give a clear and evocative picture of the war.
