Die Anglo-Boereoorlog in 100 Objekte / The Anglo-Boer War in 100 Objects

The Anglo-Boer War in 100 Objects brings the victories and the tragedies, the full extent of the human drama behind this war to life through 100 iconic artefacts.

While a Mafeking siege note helps to illustrate the acute shortages caused by the siege, a spade used by a Scottish soldier at Magersfontein and the boots of a Boer soldier who died at Spion Kop tell of the severity of some of the famous battles.

The book follows the course of the war but also highlights specific themes, such as British and Boer weaponry, medical services, POW camps, as well as major role-players on both sides.

The text is interspersed with striking historical images from the museums photographic collection. A further 200 secondary objects have been included to help tell the story of a conflict that left an indelible mark on the South African landscape.

Available in Afrikaans and English.

Available at the Museum as well as Loot, Exclusive Books and Takealot.
