GENERAL GATACRE- THE STORY OF THE LIFE AND SERVICES OF SIR WILLIAM FORBES GATACRE, K.C.B., D.S.0, by BEATRIX GATACRE. Originally published in 1910. THE main object in laying this book before the public is to provide an authentic and accurate narrative of Sir William Gatacres work in South Africa. The first half of this story has been entirely dependent on the recollections of others, and in the latter half, the authors own personal knowledge of Gatacre and his affairs has enabled the author to seek the information from numerous sources. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
