dc.description.abstractEver since Federation, Australians have heard of the Boer War, as they have heard of the Wars of the Roses. As to deep understanding, they have as much about the one war as about the other. In 1979, a certain Director of Melbourne University Press felt confident accepting for publication a manuscript entitled "The Forgotten War: Australian Involvement in the South African Conflict of 1899–1902." The author, Laurence Field, was right to say 'forgotten'. On this scholarly path, Craig Wilcox now acknowledges Field as a pioneer, where his few companions included Gavin Souter, most percipient of our scholar–journalists.en
