If you have a look on the homepage there is a section of eye witness accounts. There are a few others, Littlehand is probably the best person to post links to them.

Fascinating secondary source material, yes. It reads like a basic book ooutlining the main battles of the AZW.
This "Zulu Boy" seems to have known everything that there was to know about the AZW doesn't he?!?!

Hi Tasker
Its interesting he lived in the iSandlwana area so visited the battle field and spoke to relatives and people involved in the battle. A major part of his story is relating converstions and stories he had listened to in the villages. So yes your right its probably more second hand stories, could even be a little bit of bragging. But still even as heresay its still full of information.
And a delightful insight into the life of an umfaan.

Hi Springy,
I agree that the life and experiences of the Zulu boy are very interesting from gaining an insight into the attitudes and culture of the Zulu peole who lived around iSandlwana, I read the whole lot the other night - I was rivetted!
The stories of the boy's life and times seem authentic. The stories of the battles? I am a little sceptical. They read like any other old contemporary account. Nothing new or revealing about the Zulu point of view. I wonder how much of this was actually told by the boy and how much was written in by the author.
The accounts of the battle are all too conventional.
The author may well have inreviewed this Zulu boy and the life and times are as told. The way I read it, the author has added in the parts about the AZW to make the book interesting to his potential audience. After all, few people at the time of publication would have been very interested in the life and times of a young, Zulu sheep herder; they wanted to know about the AZW.
