A contemporary personal account of the war in South Africa 1899-1902, with illustrations. Paperback, 350pgs.
Cosby Jackson served in the 7th Mounted Infantry during the campaign.
This book is a fabulous account of his time serving in South Africa, with lots of details on his daily routine, the weather, their food etc, with line drawing cartoons done by the author.
‘The sketches are delightful, full of life and humour, while many of them are decidedly witty; and the whole diary should be read as an illuminating footnote to the more serious, and less entertaining, military and official histories of the war’. The Times
