Blockhouses had been erected right over the country,
farms had been entered and burnt to the ground,

were set against white walls
and firing squads
was set against them

at the commands of Horatio Herbert Kitchener.
[Note: My own great grandmother died in a British concentration camp and my great grandfather was sent by the British to St. Helena as a prisoner of war and as a result of this, my grandfather(Gert Strydom) grew up in a orphanage.]
