About Howard C. Hillegas

Howard Clemens Hillegas was born in 1872 in Pennsylvania and began his career as a journalist after graduating from college, eventually working as a war correspondent for the New York World.     In 1895 Hillegas was sent to South Africa and developed close ties to Boer statesmen and military leaders.   He wrote extensively about them and his experiences during the war, though this collection of articles was suppressed by the British on its publication in 1901.

Please Note

Please be aware that the text of this PDF was written in an age when sensibilities were somewhat less delicate and attitudes to peoples not of the British Isles were considerably less enlightened.

About Matomaton

I've long been fascinated by military history and over the years have gathered a collection of reference books and images like those included in this PDF. Now I've been encouraged to make them available to other wargamers and roleplayers for reference and to add period detail to related games.
