The Boer War Atlas…

After a couple of years of work, The Boer War Atlas is about to hit the shelves:

Working from modern-day maps to ensure topographical accuracy, the Atlas covers pretty much every significant action in both the conventional and guerrilla phases of the war, with maps showing events on tactical, operational and strategic levels. There are also numerous diagrams, ORBATs and photos, both modern-day and contemporary.

Here it is, all printed out and ready for collation:

Of course, as it does not blindly parrot the Apartheid-regime-approved version of events, I am sure it will provoke the normal storm of faux-outrage from the usual gaggle of idiots who will feign offence without even reading it. We can also look forward to a couple of embittered so-called academics being dug-up to write ‘reviews’ in which they point out a spelling mistake, and maybe even a few more death threats from the lunatic fringe of South Africa’s Far Right.

    I’m interested in a copy. Busy reading Churchill’s journal from the ABW but it’s very confusing when you can’t reference it with a map.

      Being able to link the tactical maps of various actions with the operational and strategic maps really does make a difference – I hope you’ll enjoy the atlas.

    Great news – would love a copy. Let me know when available and where.

    Hi Chris, looks amazing! Is there directions and or coordinates included in the book?

    • Bulldog Posted November 29, 2020 7:55 pm

      Hi Warren – thanks for the kind words.

      Not GPS coordinates, no – but there are modern-day reference points on several of the maps, to help one orientate oneself. It is a military atlas rather than set of guides to the battlefields – if that makes sense!

    Hi Chris
    Kindly advise if a copy of this book is still available
    Thanks and best regards

      Good afternoon, Richard

      Yes – available direct from the publisher ( or you can try Exclusive Books. If you are in Johannesburg, the book shop at the Rand Club stocks the Atlas, and is well worth a visit anyway.

      Hope this helps?
