The war clouds gather. And the storm breaks. The invasion of Natal. Defeated at Elandslaagte. Pursued by the Lancers. Risking Joubert's anger. The Boer General's superstitions. Colenso and Spion kop fights. The battle of Vaalkrantz. The turn of the tide. The Great Boer retreat. Driven from the Biggarsbergen. Great powers to intervene. Dispirited and demoralised. Occupation of Pretoria. Battle of Donkerhoek / Diamond Hill. I become a General. Our camp burned out. Battle of Bergendal / Machadodorp. Two thousand British prisoners released. A government in flight. An ignominious dispersal. A dreary trek through feverland. Pains and pleasures of commandeering. Punishing the pro-British. Battle of Renosterkop. The second Christmas at war. Capture of Lady Roberts. A dismal Happy new year. General attack on British forts. A bluff and a battle. Execution of a traitor. In a tight corner. Eluding the British cordon. Boer Government's narrow escape. A Government on horseback. Blowing up an armoured train. Trapping pro-British Boers. Brutal kaffirs' murder trail. Capturing a freebooter's lair. Ambushing the Hussars. I talk with General Blood. Mrs. Botha's baby and the "Tommy". The last Christmas of the war. My last days on the veldt. I am ambushed and captured. Shipped to St. Helena. Life in Bonaparte's prison. How we blew up and captured trains. How we fed and clothed commandos. Our friend the enemy. The fighting Boer and his officer.
