How it works


Sought-after classic of this colonial war. From the book: "On arriving home from South Africa in March last, I had no intention whatever of writing a book, and it was not till May, when writing a brief account of the operations in Mashonaland in 1896, for the Intelligence Department of the War Office, that it struck me that there were many points of general interest which had no place in an official account. This idea assumed definite form when Colonel R. S. Baden-Powell s book, The Campaign in Matabeleland, 1896, and Lieut.-Colonel Plumer s, An Irregular Corps in Matabeleland, appeared, and the thought Why not Mashonaland too?"
