At the turn of the 19th century there occurred a war so devastating in its consequences that the world is still feeling its effect. Perhaps the most important result of the war is that the Jews gained control of the richest gold deposits known to mankind, along with a diversity of minerals seldom found in one country; all of which are of the greatest importance to the West today. The purpose of this article is to summarise the causes of the war, who was behind it, and what their motives were.
The Anglo‑Boer War is not a well known event in the annuals of history. Indeed, it is safe to say that it is a war which was swept under the carpet. I doubt whether it is a subject which is ever mentioned in the classrooms of U.S. schools and universities. This is no accident, but deliberate policy. We need to look at the character and racial make up of the “Boers” as they were called in the early part of the history of what is today South Africa. The Boers were farmers; the racial make up of the Boer was not very different from that of the people of the southern United States.
