I am greeted by the petrifying sight of thirty or sixty or seventy buffalo looming large at a distance, each of them staring at me. Just staring would be okay; I could handle that. But these are also coming at me.
I just stand there turned to stone, waiting for something to happen – something other, that is, than having a herd of cape buffalo running toward me. If it weren't for Peter, they surely would have trampled me to death. Fortunately, he recollects himself just in time to yell at me to get my ass behind the tree.
The tree. Hmm . . . What tree?

A Field Guide, a companion to Anglo-Boer War Blockhouses, is an extensive review of the blockhouses left standing in South Africa. A first-of-its-kind guide, it can be used for virtual visits to learn more about these military structures, or to get ‘boots on the ground’. Its aim is to put the blockhouse sites on the battlefield tour map & to encourage guides & amateurs alike to explore them in detail.
The guide acts as a record of the current condition of the sites, sadly having been ravaged by human destruction & the effects of weather. Thirty of them are protected by government legislation which has proved in-effective. One day this guide may be the sole source of reference to an aspect of our national heritage that we are in danger of failing to preserve.
Anglo Boer War – Blockhouses – A Military Engineer’s Perspective is a fresh look at how the construction of over 9,000 fortifications during the Boer War sought to change its course. From tracing the British Army’s use of blockhouses prior to the war, to what conditions where like for the “Tommy” fighting in these structures.
The ’blockhouse strategy’ used by Lord Kitchener during the Guerrilla Phase of the war is examined as part of the wider strategy used to bring the war to its conclusion. Through detailed analysis and the lens of military expertise, the author finally answers the question: “Did the blockhouses win the war?” or were they merely the strategy of a “Blockhead?”
