Disregarding the awful conditions and morality of it all, were the British-run concentration camps successful in winning the Second Boer War?

My understanding is that the British were trying to deny the Boer guerillas the ability to hide amongst civilians and use their resources, so they rounded up all the civilians and conducted a scorched-earth campaign throughout the countryside. This led to tens of thousands of civilian deaths in the camps - partly due to disease, partly due to starvation (the Boers had been attacking supply trains). It is important to note that these were not the same camps that Nazi Germany would later use; their intended purpose was merely internment rather than extermination.

Anyway, my question is purely about the military aspect of the camps. Was this strategy effective in defeating the Boers, or was it inconsequential?

What if the Boer Republics beat Britain in the Second boer war (1899-1902)

What if they beat Britain in decisive battle and wore them down with guerrilla warfare ?

How would it affect relations ? Would Britain try again ? Would the Republics won if Britain tried again. ?

My great-great-aunt's account of the Second Boer War.

I am firmly convinced that there are very few people living today who remember reading of the β€œBoer War” with England and her colonies, Canada, and Australia. War was declared in the year 1899 and ended in 1902.

The Boers were farmers who lived in the Cape Colony, South Africa, and who finally rebelled under English government β€œtrekked” to the Transvaal, across the Vaal River, to form a republic of their own, under their own independent rule and laws. My father was one of the dissatisfied Boers and joined a train of wagons to reach, what to them was the Promised Land. The family at that time consisted of my mother, my father, and two small sons. The year was 1883. I, (a girl) was born in a wagon on the β€œTrek” with just the help of a Kafir woman, who with her husband, insisted on going with their β€œbaas” (master) and β€œon-novi” their mistress. From the tales with which my father kept us enthralled in later life, they suffered many hardships. The Kafirs (Negros) were savage and cruel, and like the Indians in America, fought bitterly and savagely to hold the land that they had just inhabited. We finally settled in a small dorp (larger than a village, but not a town) named Petersberg, in the northern part of the Transvaal. My father established a wagon builders shop there – also a flourmill and prospered very well. I remember that we had the first piano there to take the place of the little organ, which we had brought with us on the β€œtrek.” We also had the first β€œhorse hair” upholstered furniture for the parlor, and I can still feel how it scratched in spite of the numerous petticoats and pantellettes I wore, on the rare and few occasions we were allowed in the parlor when I was called upon to play a rather intricate piece of music. β€œEchoes from the Mountains” – and how I hated it!!!! We lived in Petersburg, and as most large families do, happiness, quarrelling, grieving when sickness brought one of us down – and joyful at recovery, brought our family close together. Pretoria was the capitol of the Transvaal. Johannesburg – the wealthy and teeming city of a gold strike, and there is where our placid humdrum lives were rudely interrupted. England wanted our gold and demanded for equal rights. The demands were so exorbitant that they were rejected and war was declared. There was great excitement in the β€œdorp” and as I was then fourteen years old, I felt that the outcome of the war was on my shoulders, and we would run the English (rovi-neks – red-necks) as the B
