He examines the actions of the leading personalities on both sides, and carefully traces the transformation of the conflict into a war of attrition. He regards High Commissioner Alfred Milner as the single individual most responsible for starting the war, and moreover asserts - "contrary to the accepted view of later historians" - that such Rand millionaires as Alfred Bett and Julius Wernher were his accomplices.
