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.

From soon after its acquisition by Britain during the Napoleonic wars, the southern tip of Africa had been shared between British colonies and independent republics of Dutch–Afrikaner settlers,.

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.

Second Boer War - ABW - Christiaan De Wet was considered the most formidable leader of the Boer guerrillas.

Christiaan Rudolf de Wet (7 Oct 1854 – 3 Feb 1922) was a Boer general, rebel leader and politician. De Wet served in the first Anglo-Boer War of 1880–81 as a Field Cornet, taking part in the Battle of Majuba Mountain, in which the Boers achieved a victory over the British forces under Major General Sir George Pomeroy Colley. He continued his successful career to the end of the Second Boer war, striking heavily where he could and evading every attempt to bring him to bay.
