The Mafeking Diary of Sol T. Plaatje

by Edited by: John Comaroff



Sharp-sighted, witty, engaging, superbly written – Sol Plaatje’s diary provides a wonderfully readable view of the siege of Mafeking, one of the most famous episodes of the South African War. Notable as the only diary of the war by a black South African to have survived, it provides a fascinating account of the part played by the African population of the town in what was supposedly `a white man’s war`.
