Anglo Boer War – Blockhouses – A Military Engineer’s Perspective


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?”
