The diary illustrates in the first place the agonising despair of a cultured Afrikaner to whom the war had begun to seem futile, and who gradually began to consider surrender. His inner conflict grew in intensity until it reached breaking point and he laid down his arms to join the enemy. Du Toit not only describes his role as a patrol guide for the British until hostilities ceased, but also recounts several skirmishes and an important battle like Frederikstad (20-25.10.1900) in which he took part while he was still on the Republican side.
