What was the Boer War?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What was the Boer War?       
What was the Boer War? The Boer War took place in southern Africa as a result of a complicated political situation. The Boers were settlers of Dutch origin who resented British rule of their region. They migrated north into the area occupied by the Zulus.The British, Dutch and Zulus all fought each other.

Eventually, the British troops defeated the Zulus at the battle of Rorke's Drift in 1879.

However, the war continued for over 20 years until the Boers were finally defeated by the British in 1902.This defeat led to the foundation of the modern state of South Africa.

Between 1880 and the start of World War I, in 1914, the major European nations divided most of Africa between them.
