The Five Most Interesting Conflicts - The Boer Wars

In the second of my five articles looking at military conflicts I am going to consider the wars that took place between 1880 and 1902 at the southern tip of Africa called the Boer Wars.

The Boer War (1899-1902): The British controlled most of southern African what they didn't control was controlled by the Boers---Dutch descendants of early African colonists---after finding major mineral deposits on Boer land, the British invading resulting in the Boer Wars. The British took the Boer territories and created the White controlled political system that would dominate South Africa for more than 100 years.
