With Buller in Natal, or, A born leader by G. A Henty( Book )

They were in the great battles and in the lonely fights on the Veldt; were taken prisoners and escaped; and they rendered most valuable service to the English forces. The story is a most interesting picture of the War in South Africa."--From publisher's website
