About: The Battle Of Spioenkop 23-24 January 1900

The fierce Battle of Spionkop, as well described in this 5th volume of The Anglo-Boer War Battle Series published by 30 Degrees South Publishers (Pty) Ltd, was fought during the Second Anglo Boer War from 23–24 January 1900 and ended with a British defeat by the Boers during an effort to break the Siege of Ladysmith. Confusion and carnage among the British troops on the summit of Spioenkop followed what began as a successful surprise on the Boers. Under constant, heavy fire the British were forced to withdraw, once again failing to relieve Ladysmith and suffering 243 losses, while the Boers had 68 fatalities.
