The Last of the Gentlemen’s Wars. The Fifth Dragoon Guards in the South African War.
"This small place, which sprang in the course of a few weeks from obscurity to fame …" opens Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s retelling of The Siege of Mafeking.  Author of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries, Conan Doyle provides an excellent contemporary account of the siege in his history, The Great Boer War: A Two-Years’ Record, 1899-1901. 
It was at the Siege and Defense of Mafeking during the South African (Anglo-Boer) War that Baden-Powell made his name and first gained public recognition. 1999 marks the beginning of the Centennial of the War. Developed as part of that observance, Perspectives on the South African War provides a collection of links to original and contemporary sources on the South African War.
