New Zealand contributed troops and materiel to the South African War way beyond what was expected from such a comparatively small colony.

But what did these troops go to do? Why did they think it was important? Who were they fighting against? And what were their motives for taking on the might of the British Empire?

This course looks the causes of the war and how it was fought. It also offers the opportunity to reflect on the nature of this war and its ultimate outcomes.

Pre-course activity:
You will be emailed readings and links to internet sources before the course, to help you with in-class discussion during session 1.

Target audience:
This course is for anyone interested in military history, South African history and how humans perceive and achieve their own best interests.
