Osprey Warrior 83 : British Infantryman in South Africa 1877-1881 : The Anglo-Zulu and Transvaal Wars

For many people the epitome of the British soldier of the late Victorian period is the Redcoat who fought in southern Africa in the 1870s. This book covers the key period of the wars against the Zulu and Boers - the dramatic battles of Rorke's Drift, Isandlwana, Ulundi, Laing's Nek and Majuba are some of the most famous engagements in the history of the British Army. The journey of the British soldier from the back streets of Britain's inner cities, to the isolated rock outcrop of Isandlwana and the mountain top of Majuba is one of discipline, devotion, loyalty, bravery, determination and sheer hard-work. It is a journey from which many men never returned. Text by Ian Castle with illustrations by Christa Hook.
