The Zulus at War
The History, Rise, and Fall of the Tribe That Washed Its SpearsBook - 2014
Initially the might of the British Empire was humbled as never before by the shocking Zulu victory at Isandlwana, but the 1879 war ended with the brutal crushing of the Zulu Nation. However, as Greaves reveals, this was by no means the end of the story. The little-known consequences of the division of Zululand, the Boer War, and the 1906 Zulu Rebellion are analyzed in fascinating detail. An added merit of this long-awaited history is written not just by a leading authority but, thanks to the coauthor's contribution, from the Zulu perspective using completely fresh material, making this unique among most popular histories. This paperback edition also features a new introduction from Greaves.
