First edition of Churchill’s fifth book, a continuation of his coverage of the Boer War which he began in London to Ladysmith via Pretoria.

The sequel to Churchill's popular London to Ladysmith via Pretoria, Ian Hamilton's March "describes the fighting march of Ian Hamilton's mounted division from Bloemfontein to Johannesburg (Churchill rode a bicycle into 'Jo'burg' a day before the army arrived) and on to Pretoria, where the author was able to help liberate his former fellow prisoners" (Langworth, 58). The work consists of 17 letters Churchill published as a Morning Post correspondent; "in contrast to London to Ladysmith, the texts of the originally published letters were more extensively revised and four letters were included which had never appeared in periodical form" (Cohen A8.1.a).
