Zulu War 1879: Twilight of a warrior nation (Campaign)

Ian Knight


Osprey's crusade name for the Zulu battle (1879). within the overdue 1870s the British Imperial management within the Cape colony in southern Africa started to view the Zulu country as a problem to their authority.To include this perceived risk, they engineered a warfare. The early campaigns went extraordinarily fallacious, with the decisive Zulu victory at Isandlwana. eventually even though, the British received the conflict. The Zulus, essentially reliant on their ability with the stabbing spear, had no actual defence or retaliation opposed to the massed firepower British squaddies. Ian fort examines the British-Zulu conflict and its key battles, Isandlwana and Khambula, with first-class black and white photos accompanying the transparent and distinct textual content.
