Overview
-

The Anglo Zulu War continues to attract phenomenal interest. What was meant to be a quick punitive expedition led by Lord Chelmsford turned into a watershed for British Colonial power. The ignominious defeat at Iswandhlwana was a terrible blow to British military pride but the heroic stand at Rourke’s Drift, while a minor event by comparison, allowed the powers-that-be to salvage some honor.

This authoritative book covers all the main players, be they military, political or civilian, with concise yet readable individual entries. In addition to the military commanders on both sides, we have the VC winners, those at Rourke’s Drift and survivors of the massacre. Individuals such as The Crown Prince Imperial whose actions made an impact all have entries.
