Blandford Press | 1980 | ISBN 071731469 | 180 pages | PDF | 199MB
This is the first of Michael Barthorp's four books on British colonial wars in the nineteenth century. It covers the Zulu War, famous for the annihilation of the British Camp at Isandlhwana and the defense of Rorke's Drift immediately thereafter. Over 150 photographs and contemporary illustrations from museums and private collections, both in Britain and South Africa, are complemented by a text which explains the background and causes of the war, the opposing forces and plans, and the course of the campaign, from its disastrous beginning until the final overthrow of the most feared tribal nation in Africa.
