        The British after burning many Boer farms set up concentration camps where disease was rampant which resulted in 29 Afrikaners and over 20 black people; men, woman and children dying in. While the British viewed the Boers as a backward and stubborn people, the Boers strongly believed that their way of life, with its own language and staunch religious faith, had been ordained by God. Calvinist Protestantism played an integral part in Boer identity and the Bible was the most important book in every household.

        The British believed that the Boers would be easily defeated and that any military collaboration from groups of Blacks would not be decisive in winning the war. In addition, it was commonly believed by both sides that the military methods of the Black people were more brutal than those of white people and that white women and children would not. The War in South Africa: Its Cause and Conduct is a non-fictional work by Arthur Conan Doyle, of Sherlock Holmes and Lost World fame, exposing the conduct of the British Army during the Boer War.. Sympathetic to the British POV, it's a historical account of the events leading to and resulting from said war, and also an attempt to divert both factual and invented accusations of .

      While the two main forces in the Anglo-Boer War 2 were White, it was not an exclusively White war. At least 15 Blacks were used as combatants by the British, especially as scouts to track down Boer commandoes and armed block house guards, but also in non-combatant roles by both British and Boer forces as wagon drivers, etc.   BOOK REVIEW: 'THE BOER WAR',, The Boer "scorched earth" reprisals against civilians and their property, in this case by the British against the Boers; concentration camps for the internment of enemy non-combatants (mainly Boer women and children) as well as for displaced Blacks, again by the British; the use by both sides of magazine-fed.
