Customer Review

on 10 October 2011
When I began reading this booking I was a little fearful that it would just be a series of descriptions of battles which I have previously found to be quite tedious.

Fortunately, this book is so much more. A lively cast of entertaining characters, some fascinating political machinations involving Queen Victoria and Disraeli, plenty of myth-debunking and some truly exciting battle descriptions.

A relatively easy read if you can get your head round some of the Zulu names (would have been nice to have been told how to pronounce them). The narrative flows well and there aren't too many of those annoying *'s interrupting the flow and turning your attention to an aside or clarification (the ones that are there are brief).

Highly recommended.
