Concerning the first two volumes, Mendelssohn notes: "This compilation ... affords a record of the South African War up to the advance to Komati Poort and the flight of President Kruger. The volumes are interesting and entertaining ... " Regarding 'After Pretoria: The Guerilla War', which completes the overall work, he observes: "These volumes continue the history of the South African War to the signing of Peace at Vereeniging. The same careful attention to detail is evinced in this work as in the preceding volumes ... "
