"Despite the fact that 180,000 Britons fought in the Boer War from 1899-1902, just 15 years before the start of World War I, few ordinary researchers know much about it. This new guide aims to fix that, providing a background to the war in South Africa, the regiments, the conditions, the battles, the men and the families they left behind, as well as the aftermath. Here you can discover how to research their lives, their military service and their times using contemporary records, both on and offline, before you start exploring a lesser-known aspect of your family's story. "-- (02/01/2017) "This is an excellent social history of what life was like for the young men who eagerly went off to fight in the Boer War...The book is full of vignettes about the soldiers, officers, and enlisted, and their families."--FGS FORUM
After graduating in Economic and Social History Jane Marchese Robinson spent some thirty years working as an advocate for marginalised groups, including the homeless, people with disabilities and mental health problems and asylum seekers. This work gave her an insight into many aspects of human experience. In 2005 she rekindled her childhood passion for writing at Adult Education classes. She followed this by undertaking the MA in Creative Writing at Plymouth University where she honed her skills writing short stories, poetry, a screenplay and began work on her novel, which is also set at the time of the Boer War. She graduated with Merit in 2011 and has been writing full time since then.
