How it works


Publisher's orange cloth hardcover.

365pp. Illustrated. Large fold-out map in rear pocket.

Book and jacket in excellent condition.

With introduction, editing of the text and historical notes by O.J.O. Ferreira.

From the foreword:

'Although this book virtually covers Bouwer's entire life-story, the emphasis is on his experiences during the Second Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902), with special reference to his part in the invasion of the Cape Colony under the command of General J. C. Smuts. There is no denying that Bouwer's book is an important source of information on the struggle in the Cape Colony, since very little literature exists about this facet of the war. In addition, Bouwer was fortunate enough to dictate his reminiscences to a most competent writer, so that the final product should be very readable and interesting to both historian and history-lover.'
