Boer War (DVD)
- R 61
Documentary that revisits the Boer War, a conflict for control of South Africa that took place between 1899 and 1902. With an empire that stretched over much of the globe, Victorian Britain was used to dealing with uprisings - however, the Boer War proved a stern test. The Boers pioneered a new form of guerilla warfare that tested the resolve of British soldiers and strategists to the limit and led to a re-evaluation of military tactics and the attention paid to the wellbeing of soldiers.
