Charles Tweddell (1869-1921) was one of several thousand Canadians who fought with British forces in the Anglo-Boer War. This is the diary he kept from the time he left Quebec City until his return.

Carman Miller is Professor Emeritus of History at McGill University.

"Miller offers a detailed, rich, and thorough introduction to C.H. Tweddell's diary that embraces and incorporates the leading scholarship on the war, both in Canada and from around the world. Situating the wartime experience within late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Canada, Miller provides new material to understand the war and sheds light on what motivated Canadians to participate." Tim Cook, Director of Research at the Canadian War Museum
