Description
RHODESIA SERVED THE QUEEN
Volume 1
A.S. Hickman

1970, hardback, Good condition.

The author, Colonel A. S. Hickman, has lived in Rhodesia for 46 years. He served in the British South Africa Police, retiring as Commissioner at the end of 1955. Since then he has been engaged in historical research, mainly concerning the pioneer days of Rhodesia.

In the preparation of this book, Rhodesia Served the Queen, he has been sponsored by the Rhodesia Army, and, in doing the necessary research, apart from the studies of documents at Salisbury and Pretoria Archives, has undertaken field work from the southern borders of Rhodesia at Fort Tuli to Mafeking and beyond, visiting many sites along the route, in the Western Transvaal and Northern Cape Province, and in Botswana, on the line of advance of Col. H. O. Plumer towards the relief of Mafeking. The story of the part played by Rhodesian forces in the Boer War of 1899 to 1902 has never been related before in consecutive detail, and the narrative, developing from the establishment of Rhodesia, and the causes of the war, which the author considers to have been inevitable, goes on to deal with the preparations on both sides and the first encounter, at Kraaipan.

The defense of the Rhodesian borders is then described, and includes the discovery of a battle-site at Bryce's Store, which was found in the bush, in almost the same condition as when it was left by the opposing forces. The story goes on to relate Col. Plumer's advance with his Rhodesians southwards, and the difficulties they encountered.

It concludes with the combined operations of British columns from the north and south, which led to the actual relief of Mafeking, on 17th May, 1900. It is a fascinating story of courage and determination to surmount all problems, and should furnish Rhodesians with a proud appreciation of the quality of their forebears in our not-so-distant past.
