I have just read "Towards Pretoria" by Julian Ralph, which made quite interesting reading, but I found was too journalistic for the information that I was hoping to glean from it, but never-the-less a book which conveyed the atmosphere of the conflict very well.
I am looking for a well-written book that can tell me much of the detail of the fight between the battle at Modder River and on to the dash for the Relief of Kimberley and the ensuing few days following this event. Is there such a tome, or am I just going to have to pick up what I can from general accounts of the whole War?
Can anyone help?
I have added a photo that bears no relevance to this topic, except that it was taken whilst the XRH loaded horses somewhere in S. Africa in 1900, and it is in Major Pillinger's album.
