As a young and eager Boer War correspondent, Churchill mailed these dispatches to the London Daily Telegraph. Case's reading moves at a vigorous pace that is consistent with the excitement of the dispatches. However, his British accent lends both a nasal quality and faint ennui. While this characterizes the British government's complacent prosecution of the war, it does injustice to the energy and immediacy of the young correspondent's work. The reading and packaging don't entirely enhance the text. An introduction, background or maps would make imaginative use of the plain vinyl cases.
