Adrian Greaves uses his exceptional knowledge of the Anglo-Zulu War to look beyond the two best known battles of Isandlwana and the iconic action at Rorkeís Drift to other fiercely fought battles.
He covers little recorded engagements and battles such as Nyezane which was fought on the same day as the slaughter of Imperial troops at Isandlwana but has been eclipsed by it. Like the battles at Hlobane and Gingindhlovu.
The death of the Prince Imperial, which caused shock waves round Europe and had huge repercussions for those involved, is examined in detail. The defeat of the Zulu Army at Ulundi was the culmination of the war and the author reveals new and shocking details about this battle.
There is a hint of ominous events to come in the slaughter of Colonel Austrutherís Redcoat column by Boers as they marched from Ulundi to Pretoria. This was the opening salvo of the First Boer War.
This hugely informative book will fascinate fans of this period of our Imperial history.
