Of the slightly more than 104,000 women and children placed in these camps, about 28,000 died. The humanitarian world was appalled. The conduct of the British against the civilian Boer population was the subject of universal disapprobation, so it's interesting to note that his written defense of the British cause in the war was the reason Conan Doyle (creator of the Sherlock Holmes) was later knighted

This Day in History: May 31, 1902: The Boer War ends
