Conclusion: A Bridge Too Far?

  • Steven C. Dubin


It is a balmy October day in 2003. Spring smells saturate the air at the Talana Museum and Battlefield outside Dundee, in KwaZulu-Natal province. Enthusiasts rehearse for the annual reenactment of the Battle of Talana, the skirmish that opened the South African (nee Anglo-Boer) War. One man moans “It’s another shit day for the Empire”: here, after this 1899 encounter, the Brits fled to the town of Ladysmith, which became the site of a famous siege. Among those witnessing the Battle of Talana was a young reporter named Winston Churchill.
