Title: The Australians at the Boer War
Description: The Australian War Memorial/Australian Government Publishing Service (AGPS), Canberra ACT, 1976. Octavo; hardcover, with silver-gilt spine titles; 420pp., with maps and 36pp. of monochrome plates.

Dustwrapper rubbed and egeworn; now backed by archival-quality whirte paper and professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene filmprofessionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Very good. A century has passed since the Australians faced Mauser and 'pom pom' fire and suffered the ravages of disease in South Africa. Sadly, the story of the Australian contribution in the Boer War is not well known. Presented in a very readable manner, this absorbing and detailed book serves as an essential reference book for the Australian involvement in the Boer War of 1899-1902, in which 23,000 Australian volunteers served.
