Recommendations for Boer War 1899-1902

I am looking for books on the 2nd Boer War (1899-1902). Ideally the first book would be a general narrative to provide a general overview of the battles, politics, etc. The second book would cover the subject of the Boer Kommandos - personalities, tactics, etc. Your thoughts, comments and advise are appreciated.

Try to find "The Boer War" by Thomas Pakenham. It's a good, thorough overview. I think that Byron Farwell also wrote a book about the war, I seem to remember the title being "The Great Anglo-Boer War" or something along those lines. His book was a little easier to read, but was not as thoroughly annotated as Pakenham's.
