Battles of the Anglo-Boer War series provides an accessible guide to some of the major campaigns, battles and battlefields of this historic conflict in KwaZulu-Natal. The books are written for the general reader as well as for historians seeking fresh insights into the events leading up to, during and after the battles. The text is supported by contemporary accounts and photographs, some of which have never previously been published. Maps show in detail the routes and dispositions of the opposing forces for each battle.

An attack on Elandslaagte station by the Boers prompted Major-General John French and Colonel Ian Hamilton to employ innovative tactics at Elandslaagte. The strength of this attack had a major impact on the morale of the Boer forces that faced it.
