Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Thanks Steve glad you told me. I don't know why, but I just can't stand novels about the Zulu War! Don\'t agree
I read one once or should I say half read it, a right load of crap, it's was call Zulu Sun.

I must admit that some of the factual books drive me mad, so fictional AZW novels are definitely not my cup of tea either. Having said that, you can see from the extract that Mace has done a lot of work and it doesn't read badly. Introduction by Ian Knight.

I reviewed it on the USA version of Amazon (As Loquacious Aardvark) It is excellent!

I haven't read Brutal Valour , but I have spoken to the Author on Ian Knight's FB Group page , it is indeed a fictional story , but , the historical aspect is 100 % correct , James wanted to get the historical part down correctly , fairly certain IK helped him with some / many of the details etc .

I'm part way through it and can't seem to put it down.

It's very good.
