Soldiers next to a battery firing. The Second Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902) involved a large number of British troops converting Boer republics into British colonies, which then formed part of the Union of South Africa. Despite a British victory, their losses were high due to both disease and long and bitter open warfare.
