Historian and journalist Chris Schoeman tells the story of twelve foreign women, from England, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, who came out to South Africa after the outbreak of the Anglo-Boer War, some to work as nurses on the frontline, others to teach Boer children in the concentration camps.
