Found out that there called

Morris, D. "Isandhlwana." Soldiers of the Queen, Journal of the Victorian Military Society 29/30 (1982): 3-22, 33.

Jackson, F.W.D. “Isandlwana Revisited: A Letter to the Editor.” Soldiers of the Queen, Journal of the Victorian Military Society 33 (July 1983): 9-20.

I've just read both the letters they make a fasinating read, Jackson completly destroys Morris's account
of isandlwana, he also points out the many dozens of times Morris makes something up to make the story flow. Jacksons
account is most accurate avalible and much better then the mistake, make it up and myth riddenaccounts of TWOTS or ZV.

Hi

No it wasn't, Jackson's started reasearching isandlwana in the 1950s, nothing to do with Morris and his accout was published the same year as Morris's, just less well known about.



Cheers
