Ian Knight is a well known author of Zulu histories and this one is, as ever, very good. Well illustrated and with good, clear maps, you are guided through the campaign by an expert. Easy reading - well worth adding to your library.

This is quite a sad tale of the Zulu tribes, who were provoked into a war by our `grasping' Empire - their main objective being to get hold of the diamonds and other resources that the land held - unfortunately the Zulu were in their way. The Zulu initially gave the Brit's a good kicking but were eventually faced with a far superior fighting army. It is estimated that 10,000 Zulu were killed and probably as many injured and left to face a new and uncertain existence away from their homeland. The Empire's losses were but a small fraction of that, aside from their opening defeat at Isandlwana where both parties lost over 1,000 men. That battle was followed by the famous Zulu attack on Rorkes Drift, which we've all seen numerous times, in the wonderful film 'Zulu,' starring Michael Caine. This is another excellent read in this first class series.

Just awesome. The book covers the battles of the Zulu wars which makes the pages in the book come alive and gives many details I was not aware of. I really liked it a lot and would recommend it to those interested in this stage of history.

Nice little read for a summers day. A good way to gain an understanding of a new topic, which gives primary views from both sides of the battle. Britain was clearly better disciplined and had the tools to get the job done.

Only really for those who don't have a knowledge of the conflict as its not detailed enough for those already "in the know".

A really good insight into the war as a whole, and quite interesting. Not just what happened in Zulu the film.
