  Chapter 4 ' The Zulus have been very kind to us' Chapter 5 'A big fuss over a small matter' Chapter 6 'Deceit is your most valuable asset in war' Chapter 7 ' The Zulus are a match for us in generalship, and more than a match for us in cunning' Chapter 8 'Startled by a calamity so sudden. So great and so close ' 84Author: Ron Lock. Knight, Ian, The Zulu War Twilight of a Warrior Nation A great book, very thick for an osprey book at nearly pages, packed with great illustrations,lots of photographs from the period, and 3 D battle maps. The book also includes orders of battle for the two main armies and covers the whole campaign. Written by Ian Knight one of the leading experts on the war and also includes some.

  This is a good book: well researched, well-written. It focuses mainly on the Zulu-British War of but traces Zulu history from the early s to the present. It's only pages and as fascinating as those pages are, I wished the book had been longer. The Zulu War of remains one of the best known British colonial wars and included two battles whose names reverberate through history. At Isandlwana the Zulus inflicted a crushing defeat on the British; the gallant British defence at Rorke's Drift followed and re-established British prestige. Yet as this book shows, there was more to the war than this. Six months of brutal fighting.
