Fought in 1877-78, the Ninth War, the last of the South African frontier wars, set the seal on the relegation of the Xhosa people of the Eastern Cape to the position of workers for the colonists. This first full-length study of the war begins with a history of the Cape from the first settlement, setting the frontier wars in context, then draws on sources including official British War Office dispatches to tell the full story of the conflict.
