About: The Battle Of Elandslaagte 21 October 1899

Author Pam McFadden's fascination with the military history and stories of the area began at an early age. She has done considerable research into the military conflicts fought in the vicinity of Dundee and regularly conducts tours around these battlefields. Her involvement in promoting the battlefields and establishing the Battlefields Route has resulted in greater awareness of them and an increasing number of visitors to them. Here she describes how a Boer assault on Elandslaagte station prompted Major-General John French and Colonel Ian Hamilton to employ innovative tactics at Elandslaagte. The strength of this attack during the Battle Of Elandslaagte on 21 October 1899 had a strong impact on the morale of the Boer forces. This guide is the 2nd volume of The Anglo-Boer War Battle Series published by 30 Degrees South Publishers (Pty) Ltd.
