Along with Steyn and De Wet, Kestell was one of an O.F.S. triumvirate credited with stiffening Boer morale and maintaining the Boer guerrilla resistance. He gives a full account of the campaign in Natal (where he heroically tended British wounded while under fire), and of the guerrilla war in the O.F.S. in which he served as 'veldprediker' to the Harrismith commando. Kestell (who was of 1820 Settler descent and after whom the town in the Free State was named) often served with De Wet and he gives some interesting opinions on that Boer general's charismatic leadership.
