The Anglo Boer War (1899-1902) - Boer Casualties
This project is an extension of the The Anglo Boer War (1899-1902) Boers. This is a place where we can add information about Boer casualties of the Anglo-Boer War, somewhere to assemble profiles of these men who are on Geni and to share interesting tales and anecdotes about them.
According top the Encyclopaedia Britannica nearly 100,000 lives were lost, including those of more than 20,000 British troops and 14,000 Boer troops. Noncombatant deaths include the more than 26,000 Boer women and children estimated to have died in the concentration camps from malnutrition and disease; the total number of African deaths in the concentration camps was not recorded, but estimates range from 13,000 to 20,000.
