 About the Book 

The author descibes, with swift and vivid strokes, the situation between whites and blacks, the great military qualities and terrifying military tactics of the Zulu warriors and the characters of the Englishmen, soldiers and politicians, involved in the disaster: and then having with consummate art and scholarship prepared the reader, he sets the great action in that strange, eerie land, until the reader can truly feel that he has lived through it himself. The aftermath brings him to Rorkes Drift and the gallant British stand that averted irretrievable disaster. In his new introduction to this readable and concise work Ian Knight discusses Couplands views in the light of more recent thinking and sets the book in its proper historical and literary perspective.
