Preface: The essential object of the work is the instruction of the Germanûofficer, and the criticisms which it contains point out, therefore, notûonly our alledged faults and errors, but show also what, in the opinion ofûthe Great General Staff at Berlin, we ought to have done. This celebratedûbranch of the German army had access to various sources of informationûboth during and after the war which were closed to us, and the work mayûbest be left to speak for itself.ûAJS: Translated from the original German edition this is a detailed studyûand account of the military operations in South Africa prepared by theûGeneral Staff, Berlin. Part I of the set concerns the campaign inûNatal up to and including the battle of Colenso, with an account of LordûMethuen's campaign in the west concluding with the battle ofûMagersfontein. Part II relates to operations in the western theatre fromûthe assumption of command by Lord Roberts until the surrender of Cronje atûPaardeberg. With appendices to each section.
