5.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable read., 9 Jan 2013
This review is from: Zulu (Paperback)
If you are looking at the reviews of this book then you almost certainly have a more than passing interest in what is a fascinating and at times gripping era in British military history.

The available literature for this subject is vast, the Zulu war being far better covered in both film and written works than say, the Opium wars or the war fought against the Maori nation. Because of this there are certainly more detailed and comprehensive books available, for example "The washing of the spears" by Donald Morris, which seems to be the "industry standard" and many others beside.

However this work stands as a good and comprehensive account of the war against the Zulu nation, and crucially is a very well crafted book, easily accessible to teenage readers as well as the mature reader, at no point does the book become a tedious list of detail or technical blather. It does include some really interesting information on, for example, the Zulu perspective of several of the battles that I have not read else where. Well worth purchasing.
