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

Although the contents of this whole book is of interest, can anyone advise me on any sections, that I should pay particular attention to, in relation to the Anglo-Zulu War 1879 ? Thankyou.

I meant to also ask if someone has the listing of its contents as going by what I read a while ago, it has a section on military law as referred to at that time (both home and abroad?) My copy is ordered and should arrive this week, but it'd be great to get an idea of what to expect. Thanks again.

90th, that's okay. It'll arrive this week hopefully. Apparently, there were 5,000 copies printed, I don't know what made me think more than that were published.

I was given this link ages ago, which I had forgotten I had written down, though for 1899, not 1873 -
As a point of interest, look at the section called 'Command In The Colonies', regarding the role of a Governor and also the commander of the military forces in that area, including the situations they might be called upon to act. I've only glanced through it myself at the moment, but interesting nevertheless.
