Just how bad did the British have it in Zululand, regarding medical, living conditions, food, clothing, punishment? We have seen a few eye witness accounts, but has there been a comprehensive study that substantiates the truth.

OH2 .
May I suggest you do yourself a favour and buy this book , all your questions will be answered . This book covers all aspects
of what the troops put up with during the war , its basically an A - Z , packed with much info , suicides , snakes , medical expertise
etc etc , the Amazon link is the cheapest I found with a quick look , its also the link down the bottom of this link .

OH I do have the book and certainly think its well worth having , I dont have access to my books for a couple of days but fairly certain
that Knight does draw on eye witness accounts . As I said , it covers all aspescts of the LITTLE known facts of the war , doesnt go into the battles in great detail , but covers ALL the aspects which your original post was asking . So it's well worth you purchasing in my humble opinion . You need to study mo
Cheers 90th.
