About the Book
Arthur Conan Doyle's The Great Boer War was first published in 1900. Doyle served as a doctor in a hospital during the conflict and wrote this book to justify the UK's role in it. The book covers the whole war, giving an account of the causes of the war, of those killed or wounded, and the political and military situation as Doyle experienced it.
About the Author
Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh in 1859. Sent off to boarding school, he cut his teeth as a story - teller amusing his schoolmates with tales and writing letters home to his mother.
He practiced medicine and, in 1900, volunteered as a medic in Africa during the Boer War - he was later knighted for his service. Doyle lost a son, two brothers in law, and two nephews to the Great War. He is remembered for the Sherlock Holmes stories and his novel The Lost World.
