In the Ranks of the C. I. V., is an account of Erskine Childers' experiences in the Boer War. He wrote it without any thought of publication: while serving with the Honourable Artillery Company in southern Africa he composed many long, descriptive letters about his experiences to his two sisters. They, together with Elizabeth Thompson, daughter of George Smith of the publishing house Smith, Elder and a friend of the family, edited the letters into book form.
This book has 132 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1900.
Production notes: This e-book of In the Ranks of the C.I.V. was published by Global Grey in 2019.
