The new Van Riebeeck Society publication THE WAR MEMOIRS OF COMMANDANT LUDWIG KRAUSE 1899-1900, edited by Jerold Taitz. 163 pages, coloured frontispiece, maps and illustrations, brown cloth, dust wrapper, Van Riebeeck Society, Second Series No.26. Cape Town 1996 R92
Commandant Ludwig ("Lodi") Krause compiled his memoirs in captivity in Pretoria early in 1901, shortly after being captured by the British forces. Born in Bloemfontein in 1872, he was unusually well educated for a Boer officer, having 4 university degrees by 1899, incl. an M.A. from Cambridge. Up to 1899 his career & that of his contemporary Jan Smuts moved together in roughly parallel fashion.
Krause describes the early campaigns in Natal in detail, covering Elandslaagte, Ladysmith, Spioenkop, Colenso and Pieter's Heights. >From Natal the focus moves to the Transvaal, and the retreat from the capital. As military legal adviser to the Boer Forces, Krause's view was that of the critical & privileged insider . He presided at a number of sensational trials (incl. that of Genl. Schoeman for treason) & was extremely critical of Kruger's government & of the widespread corruption & maladministration.
The final part of the memoir covers the little-known guerrilla theatre of the Northern Transvaal, where Krause served with the incompetent but larger-than-life Barend Vorster & with General Beyers. He saw a great deal of the backvelders of the Zoutpansberg commando who, according to Arthur Barlow, did not have a pair of socks between them!
Krause's family was a talented & distinguished one & this is exemplified by the career of his brother Fritz Krause, whose life "deserved to be made immortal.....through the annals of the ...film industry." A Pretoria advocate, Fritz Krause was responsible for the saving of the gold mines from destruction in 1900. After being captured he went on parole to London & was sentenced on trumped-up charges for "incitement to commit murder", serving 15 months in Holloway Prison. After the war he became Judge-President of the O.F.S. And paid a great deal of attention to penal reform.
Altogether a unique, exceptionally interesting & welcome addition to Boer War literature & one that will acccelerate the interest in the nearing centenary. Paul Mills.

BOOKS WITH A STRONG HISTRORICAL CULTURAL FLAVOUR WITH REGARD TO THE COLONIALIZATION AND HISTORY OF OF SA SINCE 1652 AND ITS HISTORICAL PERSONALITIES
Barnard (Lady Anne) TO DOCTOR GREGORY AT THE PORTLAND HOTEL, three sides, 19 x 10 cms, April 26, 1820. R1750. Written (probably) from Lady Anne Barnard's house in Grosvenor Square. She requests a visit from "my dear friend of a thousand years standing ... it gives me no pain to grow old, so you will see wrinkles and smiles in perfect amity ... I never go out unless by the greatest accident". Lady Anne Barnard's autograph letters are uncommon.
Craig (Maj-Gen. Sir J.H.) TO MAJ-GEN DOYLE AT CAPE TOWN, two sides, 22 x 18 cms, August 21, 1796. R3250. The surrender of a Batavian squadron under Admiral Lucas, to British forces at Saldanah Bay, necessitated the writing of this naval despatch. Craig was Military Governor at the Cape (1795-1797) & wrote from Saldanah Bay to Doyle to advise him that the latter's despatches had arrived to late for the `Mozelle', which had already departed for England. He refers to the burden of "a considerable number of Prisoners - and I am at a great loss to know what to do with them. "Craig adds that the Amsterdam Battery (since demolished) would be the most suitable place "where they could be shut up." He devotes an enigmatic last paragraph to the citizens of Cape Town: "I think I am pretty well acquainted with all the town business of the Cape but this has been a trying scene for them. Pour l'amour de Dieu don't say anything with the subject which may create the least alarm, but I hope I have the end of a clue which may lead to something." This is a remarkable letter relating to a little-known naval encounter off the Cape coast. It ranks among the very few South African despatches ever written from the scene of a naval engagement.
Methuen (Lord P.S.) ON THE MARCH AT KLERKSDORP, two sides ivo, written on back of printed folio sheet entitled LORD METHUEN'S OPERATIONS. A most successful march! Wolmaransstad & Hartebeestfontein taken, 5000 cattle and 15000 sheep captured! Battle of Hartebeestfontein Poort! A stubborn fight! March 3, 1901. R3000 Methuen was wounded and captured in a clash at Tweebosch in the Wtvl. in 1902. This letter conveys behind-the-scenes information, about events on the march, to someone "(Mildmay)" with whom he was obviously on casual and intimate terms. The folio sheet was written and printed by H.M. Guest, local newspaper editor, who published a number of books on the subject of the Boer War.
Wood (Lt.-Col. H.Evelyn) ZULU WAR LETTER TO SIR OWEN LANYON, two sides 4 to, Nondwini River, Zululand, June 5, 1879. R2000. Lanyon was Acting Administrator of the Transvaal, and Wood writes to him expressing his disappointment that they had been unable to meet during Lanyon's visit to Utrecht. There were tensions between
them and Wood states that "we are both soldiers and so can well understand " that differences of opinion should cause no difference of friendship." "Do not let Sekukuni shoot you", he concludes drily. This letter was written at the camp on the Nondwini River, which was two marches away from Thabanango. Wood was commander of the left wing flying column during the Zulu War and a legendary figure in the British army. He played a very prominent part in the Zulu War.
