In 1900 Lord Roberts handed over command in South Africa to Lord Kitchener, convinced that only some 'police work' remained to be done. However, within a fortnight, the war escalated and the new Commander-in-Chief had to make desperate efforts to end the conflict. This new book includes numerous unpublished letters written by or to Kitchener - including correspondence with Queen Victoria. Andre Wessels is currently Professor of History at the University of the Free State. He is the author of several publications including Lord Roberts and the War in South Africa 1899-1902.
