KS3 The South African Boer Wars

The South African Wars were known by many names: the Boer Wars for the British people, or the Wars of Independence and the Anglo-Boer Wars for the Boers themselves (also called Afrikaners).

These wars were fought between the British Empire and the two Boer republics, namely the South African Republic (Transvaal) and the Orange Free State, and took place from 1880 until 1902. Great Britain ultimately emerged victorious. The wars were deeply rooted in the long-standing oppression and tensions in South Africa.
