Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

In the past I have received great reviews and advice on the more expensive books. I have had this one on my wish list for a while - but at around £140 it seems dear to me.

Can anyone shine a light on how good it is. I love the way John Dunn is so much a part of the Zulu story - so is this book worth £140

Thanks

Sergio

Hiya Sergio, the short answer! it depend's how much
you want it in your collection.. i have had mine for
many years now. i cant remember how much it cost,
but theres £60.00 wrote in pencil on the inside cover
( a practice i detest )

I see it as a must have! his sources are impeccable,
all things John Dunn are there.. but i must say £ 140
is a bit steep,i dont know what other people think?.
cheers xhosa

So £140.00 seems to be the going rate..
i really dont understand book prices at
the moment! there up, there down, i
think Oliver Walker's, Zulu Royal Feather!
( John Dunn ) is a cracking little book,
although a work of fiction..it's packed
with biographical details as Dunn's life
unfold's.

Thanks Xhosa - A work of fiction is sometimmes a good break from the non fiction stuff (unless it is Zulu Hart)
I will add it to my wicsh list.

Cheers

Ha ha, well done Les, very subtle, I spotted it right away.

Quote;

Sergio,
"A work of fiction is sometimes a good break from the non fiction stuff".

xhosa2000,
"By the way they are showing Zulu on uk channel 4 right now!".

I could see the reference to the 'work of fiction' mentioned by Sergio, and this film (although a classic), most definitely fits into the 'work of fiction' mold.

Nice one Les, that really made my day.
