Attractive, sturdy dust jacket shows very little sign of wear. Red synthetic leather covered boards with gilt titles on spine and logo on front cover. Some edge-browing on title page, probably as a result of contact with the frontispiece showing the First Brigade under Lieut.-Col. MacDuff crossing the Orange River.
Some appropriate illustrations within the text. 12 Prelim pages, pp1-318 including Index.
A facsimile edition of the 1871 First Edition. A sergeant's -eye-view of a campaign in 1851, giving an often very different picture from that usually found in the memoirs of Generals. Conditions, people he encountered, and the battles in which he fought are vividly described.
