Hello, everybody
new on this forum, I appear: I am French (sorry Rolling Eyes excuse me for my poor English) passionate about History Of your country, particularly of Victorian period wars and campaigns of this time.
biographies of Gordon and Kitchener are my bedtime reading.
My favourite movies,Gunga din, Khartoum, four feather (the truth, that of Korda) and Of course ZULU and Zulu dawn.
Furious collector (reproduction of De Neuville, Bayonets,) I look for an advice to buy Martini MK2 Rifle, can you help me ?
For example, for you, a buying site like Worldwide Arms Ltd, it is serious or have you another address ?
best regards, friends

If you research essays on the AZW:
-Studies in the Zulu war 1879, vol. 1 and 2  by Julian Whybra (a meticulous reseracher and a member of this forum);
-"Dead wad everything" by Keith Smith,
-"The journal of the AZWRS" by John Young ( a member of this forum / unfortunately, no journal today)

For research on the battle of Isandhlwana and Rorke's Drift: "England's sons" by Julian Whybra
A casulaty and survivor's roll of British combatants for the battle of Isandhlwana and the defense for Rorke's Drift. Absolument indispensable!

On this forum there is a very good list by Springbok (a member on this forum) on the "best books" on the AZW(research / thesis / novel...)
Cheers
Frédéric
