Description

The Boer War on DVD takes you on a journey back in time to a different age, when the sun never set on the British Empire and her armies were great in number, yet poorly trained. The Boer War was a turning point in British military history and would revolutionise tactics, battlefield strategey, equipment and training. Disover how bands of Boer commandos, often comprising grandfathers, fathers and sons fighting side by side, confronted the might of Britain's armed forces on the sun-baked veldts of the Southern Cape, while the British army was forced to re-think tactics that had been used for centuries. It was a conflict that would claim tens of thousands of lives and leave both countries scarred and wounded. With rare archive footage, photographs and illustrations from the time, this incredible DVD reveals the full story of the Boer War as never seen before. Memorabilia includes a collection of authentic Boer War items, beautifully crafted from original materials at The National Archives. Included are: a hand-drawn sketch of Ladysmith, vintage posters, telegrams and accounts of battles, a reproduces target-shooting game and a set of 10 postcards showing photographs and illustrations of the time, including mounted Boer cavalry officers, British soldiers at rest and field artillery in action.
