How it works

Register

It was at Mafeking, on the expiry of President Paul Kruger's ultimatum,that hostilities commenced during the South African War with the first clash of arms at Kraaipan during the encirclement of the town by the Boer forces.Among those who had taken refuge in Mafeking were Ada Cock and her husband Willie with their four small children.The story of the ensuing seven months' siege from October,1899 to May,1900 is well known,nevertheless the finding of Ada Cock's letters provides a welcome addition to the body of literature already available on this much publicised episode of the War. Maps to ends(light offset). With annotations and a vindication of Baden-Powell... Amendments slip pasted in.174 pages text with maps and illustrations.Clean copy with dustcover.
