Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

Hi Les.

I have the book that Frederic mentions 'The Road to iSandlwana' by Droogleever. It is subtitled, 'Colonel Anthony Durnford in Natal and Zululand'. My copy of the book is published by Greenhill books, it is a hardback, the front cover illustration on the dust jacket is the battle of iSandlwana showing what looks like a 'Last Stand' (I think it is called 'At Bay'), it is from 'The Graphic' (March 15th 1879). I have looked at the contents and cannot find nothing that mentions anything about 'A Thesis', or a 'figure of controversy', so the book you mention may be a different book or a renaming of 'The Road to iSandlwana' book. Like Frederic, I am also curious about this book.

Hope this helps, and good luck with the book.

Salute

Hi All

"A Figure of Controversy: Colonel Anthony Durnford in Natal and Zululand, 1873-1879" by Robin William Fortuyn-Droogleever. Submitted by him as part of the requirement for the degree of D.Litt, in October 1982. I do not believe it has ever been published separately.

Hi all

I suspect there were only a few copies ever produced of Drooglever's thesis - the Brecon Museum was kindly donated one copy by the author. Elements of it were subsequently used in the book "Road to Isandlwana".

Anyone who is particularly interested in the thesis - come to Brecon and we'll let you read it.
