|Winston Churchill. "Operations in Natal," [London] Morning Post, March 1, 1900
As a reporter for the London Morning Post, Churchill crafted a lively mix of second-hand accounts, personal impressions, and commentary. In this article he described the stubborn Boer resistance to the British forces during the siege of Ladysmith: "Fighting is vigorously proceeding, and we shall see who can stand the bucketing best—Briton or Boer." Churchill also accused his enemies of using bullets banned by international law even as he paid tribute to their courage and fighting qualities.
