The Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902) was fought between the tiny South
African Boer republics and the mighty British Empire. For the
British it was a foretaste of the devastating power of the modern
weaponry they would face in the First World War and they suffered a
series of catastrophic defeats. In response Field Marshal Frederick
Roberts initiated one of the most audacious manoeuvres of the war.
His objective was to outflank General Pieter Cronje and his Boer
army which sat astride the route to the besieged town of Kimberley.
The move would culminate in one of the bloodiest conflicts of the
war, the Battle of Paardeberg. The outcome of the battle was far
from certain for either man. Would it be Lord Roberts or General
Cronje who prevailed?
