Title:New Zealand Rough Riders in the South African War 1899-1902: and biographical details of the members of the 10 New Zealand contingents
The South African War of 1899-1902, largely a forgotten war, has long been overshadowed by two World Wars. New Zealand sent over 6,000 men to fight a foe that they came to respect, and considered as not too dissimilar to themselves. In South Africa, the New Zealanders were highly praised for their field craft, horsemanship, discipline, and gallantry. The war proved a time when New Zealand's national identity and its bond with Britain and other colonies of the British Empire, developed and strengthened.
