For seven decades, the British attempted to close the eastern frontier to meet white settler demands for land, labour, and security at the expense of the amaXhosa and other Africans. This chapter describes Britain's aggressive approach to frontier warfare that targeted civilian lives in order to subdue the amaXhosa. It examines the tactics and/or strategies that the British and the amaXhosa employed during the frontier wars.

Keywords:   British, eastern frontier, amaXhosa, Africans, warfare, frontier wars
