“The Scramble for Africa” The last years of Queen Victoria’s reign when British imperial strength seemed assured following military victories in China and the Sudan. However, the emergence of a more gung-ho approach to war following the downfall of cautious prime minister Gladstone proved costly. One of the key figures to profit from such an opportunist climate, Cecil Rhodes, founder of the biggest Diamond mining company in the world, wanted more influence in southern Africa, and his attack on Dutch settlers led to the Boer War.
