Descripción:

Alberton 1986 r/p of 1902 edition, Galago Publ, hard bound in dj, Fine/Fine condition, 7x10, 459 pages, 16 pages of illustrations added to this edition and a new index. ---------------------------------------------------------On 2nd October 1899 a horseman arrived at his Orange Free State farm and served summonses for commando service on Christiaan Rudolf De Wet and his three eldest sons. They were to prepare for active service, providing themselves with horses, saddles and bridles, and rifles each with thirty rounds of ammunition (alternatively thirty lead balls, thirty percussion caps and half a pound of black powder). Nine days later on 11th October 1899, Britain and the Boer Republics went to war.De Wet took his place in the ranks of the Heilbron Commando as a common burgher, but a few weeks later he was nominated and elected to Commandant. months afterwards on the 9th December 1899, President Steyn of the Orange Free State, appointed him to the rank of Vecht-Generaal - Fighting General. By the end of the war he would become Commandant General and Commander In Chief of all Boer forces of the Orange Free State.----------------------------------------------------------------------After the British army had regrouped and reorganised after suffering several humiliating defeats, they advanced under the command of Lord Roberts and occupied Pretoria. Once Pretoria was occupied the British considered the war was over. The Boer commandos, however, took to the veld and carried on the fight as a guerrilla war.De Wet soon began to show that his title of Fighting General was no sinecure. In the nearly three years until the 31st May 1902 when the war ended with the signing of the Peace of Vereeniging, De Wet established a worldwide reputation as a most remarkable guerrilla fighter. He was the man whom the British couldn't catch. The damage this virtually unschooled farmer who'd never had a formal lesson in military tactics, did to the British was little less than astonishing.
