Hi Admin .
You may be correct , but I'd think Keith Smith's book '' Source documents of the zulu war '' or a name similar may already cover it ? . Also Moodies book , of which the name escapes me is compiled of source documents , I dont have the books with me so cant give the exact titles You need to study mo 
Cheers 90th

I am unclear if the 'despatches' are official, by combatants or by journalists or a mix of all three.

me.. said a most respected fellow addict,in another place from fri oct 11th.

i think i know the ' angle '! but have no previous knowledge of the author's.

The review does say?

"This unique collection of original accounts will prove to be an invaluable resource for historians, students and all those interested in what was one of the most significant periods in British military history"

For some one starting out or would like to increase their library with some solid reference books you cant beat this for value.


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Zulu-War-Books-/200986381753?pt=Non_Fiction&hash=item2ecbb8cdb9

Some excellent original source material contained.

All those for 20 quid? Absolute gift, even if they are paperbacks, lots of knowledge in there from Red Soldiers Rev Smith etc. good deal. If its still there in 5 hours I will think of buying them, allways usefull to have duplicates.
