Has anyone got this book.

This is a clearly written account of the start of the 1879 Zulu War leading up to the battle of Isandlwana. Events described include the initial invasion of Zulu empire, subsequent British reconnaissance efforts, and the battle of Isandlwana itself. The greatest strength of the book is the author’s ability to provide a balanced, unbiased account of the campaign. This is particularly welcome, as other accounts have tended to portray the Zulus as a faceless mass instead of a well-organized army. In this case the strategies, tactics, and intention of both sides are well explained and provide readers with a clear understanding of this interesting campaign. As always with Osprey books, numerous illustrations, 2D, and 3D maps are included. The illustrations in this book are especially engaging due to colourful British uniforms and the Zulu exotic battle gear. The most interesting one (and the cover of the hardback Pager edition) depicts a last stand by a small knot of British infantry and members of the Natal Native Contingent.

One minor drawback to the book is the lack of detail about the aftermath of the battle; this is not necessarily the author’s fault as Osprey has very tight page limitations which forces authors to make tough choices about what to emphasize. However, the battlefield lay virtually untouched for months after the fight with only occasional visits by foraging and burial parties. More in-depth accounts of these forays would have flesh out the text.
