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

One of the few books dealing with the Native forces of the AZW . Rascal did you ask me about a book dealing with the Black Soldiers ? . This is a very good price as well , you wont find it cheaper .

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Black-Soldiers-of-the-Queen-The-Natal-Native-Contingent-in-the-Anglo-Zulu-War-/370717152570?pt=US_Nonfiction_Book&hash=item565076d53a#ht_310wt_1255

BLACK SOLDIERS OF THE QUEEN is an excellent resource. I'd suggest anybody with an interest get their hands on it...and if the price is attractive, buy two!

The other book in the Osprey Men-At-Arms series (#388 as Pascal says) is entitled ZULU WAR- VOLUNTEERS, IRREGULARS & AUXILIARIES. Nice to have -- especially the drawings -- but it will be far easier to lay your hands on in the future...and not NEARLY as informative as BLACK SOLDIERS OF THE QUEEN which is a proper reference resource.

I can go either way generally, but in this specific case I'd splurge the $10 for an ink high, or even $20 so that I could totally deface one copy with margin notes and yellow highlighting. - 6pdr


P.S. Mind, it's nice to be able to simply cut and paste content into this forum also so there's no reason not to have your cake and eat it too.


P.P.S Of course it comes in a very large trade paperback format and may cost a few extra currency units to ship internationally.

Any ways when you have the sense of values, a book is Still better than numeric stuff ...Salute

PS: However, Marsupial, beware, because if Charles IX had a book Numéric, it would not have the problems he had ...Very Happy
