Best Coffee Table Book on the Subject 9 Nov 2006
By G. Mason - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Anglo-Zulu War is a subject often obscured from history and put under the broader picture of colonialism. But this book proves that the Anglo-Zulu War is something that requires in depth study; not only for its social and military implications but for its unique place in history. It has plenty of pictures, the most I have ever seen of the Anglo-Zulu War, and is well written with clear and concise information that historians and non-historians can enjoy alike.

A good read - needs a few more maps 5 Mar 2010
By Thomas H. Leland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent account of the English-Zulu War. More maps of locations mentioned in the narration would be helpful to understand the unfolding of the strategy. Also a glossary of some of the Zulu terms would be helpful. Otherwise an excellent read.

The Full Historical Panoply 11 Jun 2010
By Theseus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
...the most comprehensive history of the Anglo-Zulu War yet published. The result of years of research in Britain, South Africa, France, the United States, and Australia, it consists of more than 260 illustrations, most of which have never been published anywhere in the world before."

"Not just 'pretty pictures,' the illustrations have been carefully integrated with the text and have full captions assessing their historical significance."

"For the first time, great care has been taken to trace pictures of great Zulu commanders, personalities, and warriors and Brave Men's Blood therefore represents the most balanced image of the war available. The illustrations of the weapons, uniforms, and men in action bring to life the experiences of soldiers of both sides...."

This remarkable book was first published jointly by Greenhill (UK), Presidio (US), and Media House (South Africa) in 1990 in a large format superior to the later, smaller editions. 200 pp., cloth over boards with dustjacket, Glossary, Bibliography, Index.

Best account yet written by the most knowledgeable author 4 Sep 1998
By GSEdinger@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Ian Knight was inspired to study the Anglo-Zulu conflict in the same way I was: by watching Micahel Caine in the movie "Zulu". Readers may be surprised at just how accurate the movie was. And that's just one of several fascinating battles between two mighty warrior nations. There is no better author on the subject and this may well be the best of his work. READ IT!
