“The war declared by the Boers of South Africa on October 11, 1899, gave the British, as Kipling said, ‘No end of a lesson.’ The public expected it to be over by Christmas. It proved to be the longest (thirty-three months), the costliest (almost half a billion dollars), the bloodiest (at least 22,000 British, 25,000 Boer and 12,000 African lives), and most humiliating war that Great Britain fought between 1815 and 1914.”
