YMMV: The Defence of Duffer's Drift
  • Values Dissonance: Imprisoning civilians and shooting their livestock are generally not considered to be valid counterinrgency tactics in the modern era, mainly because it no longer has the same effect.
    • BF advises himself to put the "lazy Kaffirs" (aka African natives - and yes, Kaffir is an extremely offensive term nowadays) to work and dig trenches for the soldiers, probably so the soldiers won't get to exhausted or upset. The white Boers do not receive that treatment.
