Victorious Boer mounted troops bottled up a substantial British force in the town of Ladysmith in October 1899. Numerous battles were fought in succeeding months by British relief columns unsuccessfully attempting to raise the siege. While British troops on the outside using outmoded tactics were falling victim to Boer marksmen, the soldiers and civilians within besieged Ladysmith were displaying remarkable ingenuity.Makeshift weapons and daring tactics kept the Boers at bay and the city fed, while British relief forces slowly approached. many landmarks form the siege of 1899 still survive and this unique guide give a full account of all of them, as swell as full details of all the events and personalities of the original battles. Battleground: South Africa continues the high standards of BATTLEGROUND EUROPE in presenting historical locals to visitors and general readers alike.
