Abstract:

The Defence of Duffer's Drift is an enduring and imaginative classic on small unit tactics. Set at the time of the Boer War, Duffer's Drift challenges the reader to walk in the boots of a British lieutenant who must decide how to defend a shallow river crossing with a fifty-man platoon. His enemy is a fast-moving and powerful guerrilla force. Equally threatening is the nature of the war itself, for it is a war in which "there is no flank, no rear, or to put it otherwise, it is front all around".
