"British Infantryman versus Zulu Warrior" is written by Ian Knight. Ian Knight is a leading international expert on the Anglo-Zulu War and has written many books on the subject.
His "Combat"-title provides, in 80 pages, a concise presentation of the development and training of the British soldier of the Victorian era and their fearsome foe, the assegai-wielding Zulu warrior, before switching to a narrative of the Zulu War itself.
Ian Knight's account of the brief but savage Zulu war is accompanied with clear, detailed maps, color plates of the two different types of combatants involved in the fighting and split-screen artwork showing key moments from both sides' perspective. Many photographs enliven the expert analysis while Knight tells us how the Zulu War pitched well-equipped but complacent British soldiers into combat with the Zulu, one of history's finest fighting forces. Three major engagements are detailed, using first-hand accounts of these battles: the Zulu ambush at Nyezane; the shocking defeat and massacre of outmaneuvered British forces in savage close-quarter fighting at iSandlwana; and the British victory at Khambula.Read more ›
