This is a sequel to the authors' previous book, ZULU VICTORY (2004), the story of the disastrous British defeat at Isandlwanda early in the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. ZULU VANQUISHED continues the story of the war from February through July 1879, culminating in the overthrow of the Zulu Kingdom after the Battle of Ulundi. This is a very well-written and fast-paced book, based on primary sources, memoirs, and secondary studies, with extensive use of eyewitness accounts by participants. The authors' assessment of the Battle of Hlobane (28 March 1879) is a major contribution that revises earlier studies, based on the previously-unused papers of a colonial officer. Outstanding photographs, many in color, assist the reader in understanding the distinctive terrain features. A must-have for anyone interested in the Zulu War.
