Its very good reading with some excellent source material.
Dont know if you have read "Nogs Newman" or John Labands "Rope Of Sand". The latter probably the best over all view of the War ever written.

I have not read the book from cover to cover yet. But I intend to. I like the fact that he was touring the Battlefields not long after the events, and tinterviewed some of the Zulu’s that were involved, getting their opinion of what took place, something no author can do to day.

But I am quite excited about the book, just finding the time to read it. The other problem is when you start reading the book it opens all manner of discussions for the forum that you want to let others know, and of course it can answer questions other members may have posted.

Dave.

Hi Dave

As you say he was there shortly after the war, the source material having spoken to participants is amazing. A really interesting point is when he travels the Fugitives Trail and mentions finding a skull UPSTREAM of the Drift. Figure that one out.
Enjoy

That’s the part where he found just the one skull and no other bones. Wonder what happen there.

This seems to the same book I took some of my previous postS from. But I sure it was not the same title.

hi all.
If anyone is wanting to buy Mitford's book , go to the PUBLICATIONS SITE on this forum and see my post from
October 14th , I have listed 5 or 6 sites where it is the best price. Well worth having and very well written . As sd
said , It is like he is talking to you as you stand beside him.
cheers 90th.
