David Rattray's Guide to the Zulu War
by David Rattray
Book Description: David Rattray is known to many thousands of enthusiasts for his emotional and evocative lectures, he also owns a top battlefield touring lodge Fugitive Drift, close to Iswandlwana and Rorke's Drift. This is David Rattray's first publication (his audio recordings and videos have sold thousands) . No one is better qualified to explain the causes of this strange colonial war when British Imperial might was initially humiliated in a ghastly slaughter. Pride was somewhat salvaged by the heroic defense of Rorke's Drift and thereafter the Zulus were doomed. Today the battlefields are frequently visited and this attractive book is the perfect companion, being both authoritative, well illustrated and highly accessible.

Rorke's Drift 1879 : 'Pinned Like Rats in a Hole' (Campaign Series, No 41)
by Ian Knight. 
Zulu war of 1879
Rorke's Drift sums up some of the best traditions of the British self-image: steadfastness against the odds, victory in adversity and the thin red line. The British stand deserves to go down in history as one of the most heroic actions of all time. The story of a mere 150 British and Imperial soldiers defending an isolated outpost against over 3,000 Zulu warriors summed up the experience of the colonial adventure for the Victorians and remains part of our heritage even today. Ian Knight recounts the course of this famous conflict in which no less than 11 Victoria crosses were won.

Zulu War 1879 : Twilight of a Warrior Nation (Campaign Series, No 14)
by Ian Knight, Ian Castle
Osprey's Campaign title for the Zulu War (1879). In the late 1870s the British Imperial administration in the Cape colony in southern Africa began to view the Zulu kingdom as a challenge to their authority.To contain this perceived threat, they engineered a war. The early campaigns went terribly wrong, with the decisive Zulu victory at Isandlwana. Ultimately however, the British won the war. The Zulus, primarily reliant on their skill with the stabbing spear, had no real defence or retaliation against the massed firepower of professional British soldiers. Ian Castle examines the British-Zulu war and its two key battles, Isandlwana and Khambula, with excellent black and white photographs accompanying the clear and detailed text.

The Zulus (Elite Series, No 21)
by Ian Knight, Angus McBride (Illustrator)
"A very remarkable people, the Zulu," Benjamin Disraeli, said during the war of 1879, "They defeat our generals; they convert our bishops; they have settled the fate of a great European dynasty." Remarkable indeed, to have taken on the full might of the British Empire at its height. This book explains who the Zulus were, and how they achieved the fame as warriors they enjoy to this day.

The Zulu War (Men at Arms Series, 57)
by Angus McBride
By the end of the nineteenth century the fame of the Zulu was world-wide, and their army was one of the few non-European military organizations to have become the subject of serious historical study. Their very name is still synonymous with bravery, discipline and military skill. This excellent addition to Osprey's Men-at-Arms series tells the story of the Zulus at war, from their rise to unrivalled power under the fearsome Shaka to the final devastating defeat against the British at Ulundi, detailing Zulu weapons and tactics, and the famous battles in which they fought.
