Red Roses on the Veldt: Lancashire Regiments in the Boer War, 1899-1902

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Downham uses a vast array of archive documents, letters and photograps to produce an intimate and highly readable account of Lancashire soldiers in the Boar War. Written with honesty and without pretention the book leads the reader through the campaign with the personal detail that is so often missing from historical writing. As an insight into the way the Boar War was fought by the British soldier on the ground this book is invaluable. It is also a great source of contempry social history. I would reccommend 'Red Roses on the Veldt' not only to those interested in the Boar War or The Queen's Lancashire Regiment, but also to anyone interested in military or social history. The photographs alone are fascinating.
Very good condition
