I am rapidly reading a new purchase of mine - 'Zulu vanquished' by Ron Lock (which is fabulous) and just finished the chapter concerning the battle for Hlobane. breathless stuff!
However yet again I have found it almost impossible to follow the sequence of events and topography (despite some lovely colour prints in the book) - and yes I have got 'Blood on the Painted Mountain' by same author.
Of all the battles during the AZ war I am constantly drawn to this one as it combines every act of bravery (cowardice?) and terror in equal measures but unlike RD and Isandlwana the men had more choices to make as individuals, some of which ultimately led to their demise.
Can anyone recommend any source material that may be able to help me? - something more diagrammatic than the hand drawn illustrations with arrows would be great - perhaps it is the nature of the battle that creates such a difficulty in trying to replicate the pell-mell that existed on the day.
