Osprey Men-at-Arms 212 : Queen Victoria's Enemies (1) : Southern Africa

When Queen Victoria acceded to the British throne in June 1837, British troops had recently concluded a war in southern Africa against the Xhosa people, and the seeds were already sown for a clash with the Boers. When she died in January 1901 Britain was once more fighting the Boers, in one of the longest and most costly of the Imperial Colonial Wars. Southern Africa had proved a cockpit of tension and conflict second only to the Indian sub-continent. The causes of these troubles lay in the opposing interests of a variety of competing colonies, independent white republics, and black African states. This first class addition to Osprey's Men-at-Arms series outlines the history of this strife, and describes the military systems of Queen Victoria's many enemies in southern Africa. Ian Knight covers the Xhosa, Basotho, Sekhukhune, Tswana, Natal, Zimbabwe, and the Boers, accompanied by a wealth of illustrations and photographs, including eight full page colour plates by Richard Scollins.
