Osprey Battles and Histories : Zulu War

The Zulu War of 1879 was devastating in its brutality. Pitting the firepower of the professional British army against the skill and determination of King Cetshwayo's Zulu warriors, it was a mighty clash of military cultures that ended with the collapse of Zululand - the last great black kingdom bordering Britain's African colonies. This book traces the course of the Zulu War, covering the major battles of Rorke's Drift, Isandlwana and Khambula, and showing that the British victory was by no means easily won. The opposing forces - the British, under Gen Sir Arthur Cunnynghame and the Zulus, under their King Cetshwayo - are profiled, and their dress, equipment, organisation and military methodologies are examined in detail. This book includes material previously published as Osprey Campaign 14 - 'Zulu War 1879', Osprey Elite 32 - 'British Forces in Zululand 1879' and Osprey Elite 21 - 'The Zulus'. Text by Ian Knight and Ian Castle with illustrations by Angus McBride and Richard Scollins.
