Came across this earlier I dont think it's been mentioned , one for you Les , Martin , Springy and no doubt myself ! , not to mention Sergio and Richie among other avid book collectors .
I have 3 of Keith Smith's books , have read one and found it informative and concise , I'm sure all his books are , he has a good name in the world of the AZW Historians / Writers . I'm not sure on the title as Ian Knight produced a journal / booklet with the same title .

I'm glad Springy is in the dusty library instead of sitting in front of his tv ! LOL.

Hey Gary! thanks for the heads up mate.

A Zulu Boys recollections of the Zulu War..
Edited by C. de B. Webb. Natalia num 8

Umsweanto ( the begger )
" We went to see the dead people at Isandhlwana.
We saw a single warrior dead, staring in our direction.
with his war shield in his hand. We ran away. We came
back again. We saw countless things dead. Dead was
the horse, dead to the mule, dead was the dog, dead
was the monkey, dead were the wagons, dead were the
tents, dead were the boxes, dead was everything, even
to the very metals..

I have Mr Smiths books..including Studies in the Anglo
Zulu War..is this a different book or repackaged?

I note that Pen & Sword have Keith's latest (due in May 14). Basic details:

Dead Was Everything by Keith Smith.
All Frontline Books
Hardback
304 pages
ISBN: 9781848327313
Published: 31 May 2014

Publisher's blurb:

The Anglo-Zulu War of 1879 still intrigues both scholars and enthusiasts alike more than 130 years after it was fought. Its story contains tragedy, high drama and the heavy loss of human life; it involved five major battles and two lesser fights; and led to the snuffing out of the direct male Napoleonic line of France. And all this in less than one year.

Reflecting on several years' research, Keith Smith presents a series of essays which explore hitherto unanswered questions and offer fresh insights into the key battles and protagonists of this epic conflict. He presents some surprising conclusions which differ, often radically, from more orthodox views.

He also sets out to reveal the characters of the men – of both sides – who might otherwise have been simply names on a page. They are not: they lived, loved, fought and died. Some were heroes while others were less than that. Most were ordinary men who chose a military career and did their best as far as they were able. White or black, British or colonial, they are all brought to life and their unique stories told. This is an important contribution to our understanding of this famous war and the men who fought in it. courtesy of AMB.

Bonjour à tous,
 
[u]Just for information (if you don't know the work of Mister Keith I. SMITH):
You can find some essay of him on the Rorke's Drit forum (from memory: Gunfight at Sihayo's kraal, the boys of the band....), section "pot pourri".
Cordialement

According to Keith Smith, posting on the other site, it is a revised second edition of his "Studies in the Zulu War" published a few years ago.

The AZW gets a mention in the latest issue of the South African 'Farmer's Weekly'. In a brief review of 'Dead Was Everything', it states that the book is now being distributed locally by the company '30 Degrees South' at the price of ZAR499.

Brett,

What a ridiculous price, it is on sale in the U.K. at £3.99, that’s some mark-up, or has the Rand gone through the floor?

John
The Rand is indeed a shadow of its former self, but perhaps the book's distributors are hoping that local farmers are unfamiliar with the Internet and online purchases!
