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

Ah!! Yes Pascal. Perhaps you should purchase some of his books. They will answer most of your questions. Start off with "Companion to the Anglo Zulu War"

I own many of his books since his first Osprey and Ian Castle and we have corresponded by a lot manuscriptes letters at the beginning of the 90s ...

We reconnected via the Internet in recent months, he had not forgotten me and since that time, helped me again a lot when he is overwhelmed and he travels a lot, it is Still, as nice ...

Now the question is what? Whoever wrote the most books on the Zulu War or who wrote it or the best books on the Zulu War ?

Ian Knight is a personal favourite. BUT its damned difficult to say he is the best!
Best at what really? Storyteller? Without a doubt!
Able to string his facts together in an absorbing manner? Yes.
Brilliant Historian? Yes.

But a lot of those attributes would and could be shared by other historians/ Authors.
Ian is a popularist author, thats not an insult at all.
Julian Whybra, Kris Wheatley are not so much authors but more researchers who publish.
John Laband, hell he is everything.
CT Binns? Tells a great story
Rider Haggard the same.
Milton Prior, Mitford, Snook Manning where do you stop?

All brilliant in there particular field.

Pays your money and takes your choice.

Cheers

All brilliant in there Particular field.Oui! That's what I wanted to explain, but I prefer the kind of book of Mr Jackson and Julian, it was a electrochoc for me!

I really do come on this forum! I think I know a little bit in some aspects of the Zulu war, now !

Some worthy names here - but some are solely in respect of the events of 22 January 1879 rather than the Anglo-Zulu War as a whole?

Yes, but I prefer those who are Solely on a single event, for example the events of 22 January 1879 Rather than those on the Anglo-Zulu War as a whole!

Just read FWD Jackson's Hill of the Sphinx - brilliant.
I realise some of the theories that are in there are now more up to date, but the book is brilliant. It has enabled me to get a much clearer picture in my mind's eye as to the Battle of Isandhlwana.

My old Les, unfortunately, Mr Jackson is an elderly man ...

Imagine him to write a book on each of the nine battles of this war!

And I'm having a heart attack!Very Happy

"Colonel Mike Snook was commissioned into the Royal Regiment of Wales and over the ensuing 30 years served all round the world in command, operations and intelligence appointments. He spent two thirds of his career overseas and saw extensive active service in four campaigns. He is a graduate of Leicester University, Sandhurst and the Army Staff College. Twice honoured for operational distinction, he was awarded the MBE in 2000. He spent four years as a British military adviser in South Africa and latterly was the head of the UN’s J3 Operations staff in Khartoum. A recognised authority on the military history of the Victorian era, he is the author of How Can Man Die Better: the Secrets of Isandlwana Revealed, Like Wolves on the Fold: The Defence of Rorke’s Drift, Into the Jaws of Death: British Military Blunders 1879-1900 and Go Strong into the Desert: The Mahdist Uprising 1881-5."

More Military experience than those who commanded at Isandlwana.
