A great slant on the battles of Isadhlwana and Rorkes Drift.The story is told from the Zulu point of view and is based on two brothers growing up both during the years leading up to the Zulu wars and then taking part in the two battles.This gives the reader a completely dfferent view of these battles and the reasons for the Zulu struggle against the encroaching white settlement of their tribal lands.Geoff Micks brings the scenes to life in a brilliant way and you can almost smell the African air as you are taken through the trials of the two brothers and their loves and friendships. A must read for you adventure lovers!

This review is from: Zulu (Kindle Edition)
A thorough and enjoyable book. Provides the background to explain how the Zulu wars arose and gives an insight into the evolution of the apartheid system. Thoroughly recommended for anybody interested in South Africa, military history or the Zulus.

5.0 out of 5 stars At The Kill, 11 April 2014

This review is from: Zulu (Kindle Edition)
I found the book to be a fresh,vibrant evaluation of the fall of a nation of warriors due to superior weaponry held by the opposing forces.The detailed characterization of the main protagonists,their hopes and fears,their family life,the battle scenes are all beautifully drawn.
A great read!

2.0 out of 5 stars So boring, 30 Mar 2014

This review is from: Zulu (Kindle Edition)
This must be one of the most boring stories I have read over the years. (I read quite a lot). It meanders its way through Zulu history without a glimmer of excitement and its a real plodder.

5.0 out of 5 stars ZULU, 2 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zulu (Kindle Edition)
This film is one of my all-time favourites and much better on DVD than video. I like to put it away for a while and then play it again whenever the mood takes me. In the version I received from you, there is a facility to see further information about various parts of the film, actual actors of the time and their family memories, actual filming, the mighty Zulus and the magnificent achievement of so few soldiers staving off such a massive assault under difficult circumstances and impossible odds.
