Book cover

In "Origin of the Anglo-Boer War Revealed (2nd ed.) The Conspiracy of the 19th Century Unmasked," author C. H. Thomas delves into a historical period filled with widespread speculation and hidden agendas. This book offers a comprehensive analysis of the Anglo-Boer War, shedding light on the clandestine manipulations and political machinations that ultimately led to this momentous conflict.

Thomas's research is impeccable, and he meticulously dissects various primary sources to construct a compelling narrative that challenges conventional beliefs about the war's origin. As a reader, I found this alternative perspective refreshing, as it encourages a critical examination of historical events and questions narratives that have long been taken for granted. Thomas unveils a web of international conspiracies, economic interests, and diplomatic maneuvers that set the stage for an explosive clash between the British Empire and the Boer republics.

One of the strengths of this book is how Thomas combines a scholarly approach with a highly readable writing style. He presents complex information in a clear and engaging manner, making it accessible to both academics and general readers. By delving into the motivations and actions of key figures on both sides, the author creates a vivid picture of the tensions and ambitions at play during this pivotal era in South African history.

Moreover, Thomas's meticulous attention to detail enhances the credibility of his arguments. He provides extensive footnotes, citing a vast array of sources, which not only support his conclusions but also enable interested readers to explore further. This scholarly approach adds depth and reliability to the book, ensuring that it stands as a valuable contribution to the field of historical research.

However, one potential drawback is that the book's focus on conspiracy theories might deter some readers looking for a more conventional historical account. While Thomas's alternative perspective is intriguing, some may find it challenging to accept the far-reaching causal connections he proposes. Nonetheless, this work does not claim to be the final word on the subject but rather presents a compelling reinterpretation that encourages further inquiry and debate.

In summary, "Origin of the Anglo-Boer War Revealed (2nd ed.) The Conspiracy of the 19th Century Unmasked" is a thought-provoking and well-researched book that offers readers a fresh perspective on the complexities surrounding the Anglo-Boer War. C. H. Thomas presents a compelling case, challenging established historical narratives and introducing new insights into a conflict that shaped the course of South African history. For anyone interested in delving deep into the concealed forces that shaped this war, this book is an essential read.

The present book had been intended for publication in South Africa before the end of 1899, with the object of laying bare the wicked and delusive aims of the Afrikaner Bond combination, to which the Anglo Boer war alone is attributable, and to counteract its disastrous influences so far as then still possible. But until quite lately circumstances had conspired so as to prevent the writer from leaving the Transvaal, and when he at last obtained the required passport to Lourenço Marques he was there denied a permit to visit a colonial port. He therefore sailed for London in order to publish this book without more loss of time. Though too late to serve as a deterrent, the contents may be effective towards showing up the really guilty parties the instigators and seducers of the deluded Boer nation, and so pave and widen the avenue of peace and of conciliation between Boer and Briton who were duped and victimized alike.

The exposure of the actual culprits and originators should also operate favourably, and in mitigation in behalf of the much less guilty Boers, so as to dispose the victors to the exercise of magnanimous consideration... Continue reading book >>
