The Secret History of South Africa - H. R. Abercrombie

The Secret History of South Africa: Sixty-five Years in the Transvaal by H. R. Abercrombie records the eventful period of the author's life which includes the time of 1875-1910 where he not only lived but appreciated the movements of his times. His style is objective and he records many things all too forgotten; for example the the reality of the threat of a German Middle Africa, and its connection with the South African War of 1899-1902; the treatment accorded to soldiers in the hospitals of those days and its bearing on that given to the Concentration Camps; and the outstanding debt of the Union to Lord Milner for the creation of the civil service with its combined efficiency and high sense of public duty whatever government may be in office.
