Goode-bye Dolly Gray – the song that evokes the distant epoch of the Boer War and such almost mythical events as figures as the Relief of Mafeking, the Battle of Spion Kop, Chamberlain, Kruger, Kitchener and Rhodes.

The author sees and describes the background, the personalities, the campaigns and the lasting effects on Africa clearly and without censure as he reveals a war of great incompetence and heroism.
