Mendelssohn (Sidney) South African Bibliography volume 1, page 719: A perusal of this volume would probably lead the reader to believe that only that part of the South African population suffered during the war who were favourable to the Boer cause, and the author states, " Never before have women and children been so warred against. England, by the hands of Lord Roberts and Lord Kitchener, adopted the policy of Spain, while improving on her methods."
