The Boers were some bad-Ass dudes.

The Battle of Spion Kop during the Boer Wars was a real British disaster.

As I recall, the British advanced during the night. Thinking they had captured the summit, they dug in.

When the sun came up the next day, they realized that they had fortified a lower hill, completely dominated by the higher adjacent hill, which the Boers held. The Boers were able to fire right down into the British trench.

Yet another case of British military arrogance -- similar to the disasters against the Zulus and the Turks.
