The Zulu War Through Contemporary Eyes

Description hereWritten in 1894, just 15 years after the war, this is James GrantÕs excellent military history of the Zulu War of 1879. From the British disaster at Isandhlwana to face-saving at RorkeÕs Drift and the final humiliation of the Zulu nation at Ulundi, this is the contemporary view of how the events were conveyed to the public of Great Britain.

Featuring original engravings from the Illustrated London News and the Graphic, this book was written during the height of the British Empire, and the triumphalist mood of the day is reflected in the tone of the text. The martial aspects of the battles and skirmishes are covered in detail along with comprehensive overviews of the leading protagonists involved in the conflict. This detailed military history provides an echo of the contemporary attitudes to this turbulent time which shaped the destiny of the British Empire.
