4.0 out of 5 stars Bringing the heroes to life!, 17 Feb. 2012
By 
This review is from: The Rorke's Drift Men: Heroes of the Zulu War (Hardcover)
This is a great book for those interested in the men who fought at Rorke's Drift. It tells the story one by one of the famous participants and the less well known combatants. Ordinary men who rose to do extraordinary things. The origins and post Rorke's Drift lives of the defenders are covered through excellent readable research from a variety of sources. It deals inadvertantly with the truth of how many were Welsh and how many were in the mission station through a variety of transfers or who joined the county regiment of Warwickshire. In the style of "whatever happened to?" it is sad to read the fate of some soldiers, which has echoes of the trauma of more modern conflicts. Suicide was an issue for the Victorian ex-serviceman despite what we assume as a much more resolute, self sufficient time. Highly recommended,
