For a Genealogy interest in the Zulu War. It must go to Kris Wheatley for the books mentioned by Old H.

CTSG - Yes I can recommend this book - it covers from the Shaka period through to the early 1900's. I have just checked my copy and see it was originally published in South Africa under the title Rope of Sand which is included in the original list above.

My copy was published in 1997 by Arms and Armour Press - not sure whether it is still in print.

For such a short campaign there is so much material, for those that may be interested here is my list of books:

Anatomy of the Zulu Army Ian Knight
Battles of KwaZulu-Natal Ken Gillings

Crossing the Buffalo the Zulu War of 1879 Adrian Greaves
Great Zulu Battles Ian Knight

A couple of non fictions in there (and for those wanting a 'Sharpe-esque' read the John Wilcox, Horns of the Buffalo, is great fun if for no other reason than the main character survives Isandhlwana!)

My next target is Blood on the Painted Mountain by Ron Lock as I am looking for coverage of the less well known battles - any other suggestions by anyone..

Wow, thats going to make Saul David happy, someone else apart from his mom bought Zulu Hart. :lol!:
Definite reads are the Emery books, masses of source material and How can man die better by Mike Snook. Otherwise congrats thats a fair collection.
I do hear that 90th has such a big collection his wife sleeps in the garden. Wink

For the siege and relief of Eshowe I would recommend Ian Knight's, "Fearful Hard Times" and " With His Face to the Foe" by the same author for the Prince Imperial incident. In my view the latter is Ian Knight's finest work (although the imminent release of his "Zulu Rising" might well give me cause for re-appraisal!).

"The Battle of Ulundi" by John Laband is quite a nice little "Osprey" size book and worth a punt if you can get hold of a copy.

I would have expected at least one of Ian Knights books if not more. (Is there any reason why Ians have not been included in this collection) scratch

Or are they there, and i have just missed them.
