Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Hi Lunger
It all depends how much you want to get involved , some are well written with little evidence to back up their thoughts , others are crammed with footnotes detailing the Primary source evidence , believe me there are probably 30 or so that are worth reading , but , as I said , it depends how serious you are , anything by Laband , Knight , K. Smith , Sonia Clarke and Whybra ....also many others who have 1 or two books to their name . You will get people recommending books which as I said lack the primary source evidence , they might be a great read , but nothing to back up their statements etc .

Hi Lunger
It was invaluable in its day , was the first book I bought on the subject in 1974 ! , records and archives have been readily available and scrutinized since those days . I think Ian Knight's best book ( On RD and Isandlwana ) would be ' Zulu Rising ' chase down a Hard cover it has the footnotes in the back , the Blue covered paperback doesn't ! .
