Comments: During the early phases of the Anglo-South African War, 1899-1900, members of the Rhodesia Regiment under the Command of Lt-Colonel H.C.O. Plumer, saw action in Southern Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) and along the eastern border of the Bechuanaland Protectorate (Botswana).

They were instrumental in holding back substantial numbers of Boer forces which otherwise might have fought n the Natal and Cape Fronts. They were also in on the “Relief of Mafeking”. This book investigates the Rhodesia Regiment and seeks to correct some previous errors. A central theme is the current relocation of their otherwise forgotten battles and graves at Fort Tuli, Rhodes’ Drift, Mochudi, Gaborone, Lobatse and Ramathlabama.

There is also mention of the role of the Rhodesian Field Force (consisting of Australian and New Zealand “Bushmen”, as well as members of the Imperial Yeomanry) as well as the often forgotten African participants; Kgosi Khama’s BaMangwato and Kgosi Linchwe’s Bakgatla.
