A Soldiers Diary -South Africa 1899-1902


A straightforward and unvarnished account of the experiences of a Non-Commissioned officer during the Boer War.

“I commend A Soldier’s Diary as a penetrating story of life in the Mounted Infantry in the Boer War, told. most unusually, from the soldier’s rather than the officer’s viewpoint.

Murray Cosby Jaclson offers us courage and comradeship, pathos and patience, humour and hubris: all the ingredients of an experience of war that shines clearly across a century.” Dr Richard Holmes.
