For those who may be interested , anything under 10 quid for this is an absolute bargain ( Available at the Royal Regt Of Wales on - line shop I think for 10 quid ) .

Its clear with all the facts and sources easy to find.

Its not against anyone and you can make up your own mind on who's to blame.

Good photo's aswell.

Hi 90th

Was there not a follow up to this book called 'Isandlwana 1879 re-examining the sources', or words to that effect? I seem to recall mention of it on one of the threads on the forum.

Hope your keeping well mate.

Martin. Salute

Hi all

Which book came first, was It 'Hill of the Sphinx' or 'Isandlwana 1879'? And are they both worth having, or just the latest updated one?

Martin. Salute

Hi Mr Cooper

Hill of the Spinx is the new book.

According to 90th they are both worth having.

Hi Martin.
Thanks mate , all is well and hope likewise with you . I have both and for those prices you may as well do so as well ! . Salute .
Tasker .
:lol: . I did tell Pascal that after he said '' No Thanks '' to the medal I posted from ebay , I'm sure he thinks I was selling all the items !. :lol: :lol: . Hope all is well with you also .
Littlehand .
Price isnt always everything , I've seen books on the zulu war for 20 Quid and much more which are readily available for much less , or arent worth the paper they are printed on , if you get my drift . Jackson's books are truly great value as he uses source evidence and tells you from where it came , you cant beat that to my way of thinking .
cheers 90th. Salute

Hi all,

I have bought to the Welsh museum the two books of FWD JACKSON;
"Hill of the Sphinx" is for me the best book on the battle of Isandlwana
JACKSON is a meticulous historian as Mister Julian WHYBRA (plenty footnotes / primaries sources).
I know that Mister WHYBRA enjoys JACKSON's books . In french "une référence"!!!!



Cheers.

Hi 90th

Thanks for the advice mate, and yes thank you, all ok here (so far).

I will have to see about getting these books, tasker gave me a link for the sources re-examined, and it looks like the rrw museum also has the Hill of the Sphinx on offer, so well worth buying at these prices.

Cheers mate.

Hi ybob

Glad you think that 'Hill of the Sphinx' is a good book, I am thinking of buying one myself, along with 'The sources re-examined', also by Dave Jackson.

Hope you enjoy the book ymob, Dave Jacksons books always seem to be well recommended by many members on the forum.

Regards.

Martin. Salute
