Having served as a volunteer doctor in the Langman Field Hospital
in Bloemfontein in early 1900, Conan Doyle wrote a pamphlet titled
The War in South Africa: Its Cause and Conduct, and also this present
volume (dedicated to Langman). He is quoted as believing that this
resulted in his knighthood awarded in 1902. It is also significant in
being his first work of non-fiction, a branch of his writing that came
to be dominated by his later interest in spiritualism.
