Abstract

Sarah Raal was living on a farm with her family when the Second Boer War broke out in 1899. Accused of having given supplies to the Boers, her father was taken captive by the British. Shortly after, Raal's mother and siblings went out to collect provisions and never came back. Raal quickly realized she would have to fend for herself. In this memoir, Raal details her journey from spectator to warrior, her imprisonment at the Springfontein concentration camp, and the numerous guerrilla engagements she led.
