Ladies and Gentlemen,
Studies in the Zulu War volume IV is at the printer's and will be published with copies available from the Royal Welsh Museum in Brecon within the next fortnight.
The Museum will take pre-orders - phone or e-mail the museum Stephen Farish: 01874 613310.
They will be at the same price as previously.
The contents deal exclusively with Isandhlwana with the biggest of the essays containing an immense amount of newly-uncovered letters and detail from 24th soldiers.
Here are the contents:

Gunner William Taylor’s Escape from Isandhlwana Julian Whybra

“Pure serendipity led to the discovery of Gunner Taylor’s letter and the realization that it was a genuine account written by a previously-unknown survivor of Isandhlwana. It provides the basis of an ideal, original research subject for the first of the essays in this volume. Taylor’s letter, despite its relative brevity, can be authenticated and solves a number of mysteries surrounding the fate of the Rocket Battery. Yet at the same time it opens new lines of inquiry which, in turn, pose different, contentious and intriguing questions.”

Brothers in Arms Stephen Reinstadtler

“The chance discovery of Lieut.-Col. Edward Durnford’s own copy of his book and its marginal annotation leads ultimately to the conclusion that the military hierarchy at a very senior level had become convinced that Brevet Colonel Anthony Durnford had been wrongly accused of disobeying orders. As a result it had been obliged to consider all the consequences that might entail.”

The Wrecked Camp at Isandhlwana: What the Rearguard Saw Frédéric Bomy and Julian Whybra

“The third essay will prove controversial for many. In general, modern historians have dismissed all mention of mutilations, atrocities, and torture at Isandhlwana as hearsay, rumour, exaggeration, ‘contemporary mythology’, and Chinese whispers. The evidence for and against is sifted in meticulous detail. Against a scientific background of solar calendrical data, the extent of visibility on 22nd-23rd January 1879 is determined to discover what was seen in the camp, by whom, and how the circumstances arose for them to have done so. The conclusions will be surprising. During the research process the authors uncovered and have made available a plethora of additional previously-unseen information.”

In addition Volume V should be ready by the end of January.

Regards
Julian Whybra

Hi,

Are there 'back' issues of these essays available?

Also, roughly, how much does a volume cost? I have looked on the RW Museum website but can't find out any info......I'm hoping to drop some subtle/blunt hints to Mrs SRB1965 for Christmas.

I think Julian is to be commended on his volume IV in that he has included articles by forum members, Rusteez (Steve) and Ymob (Fred) . A nice piece of mentoring.

Cheers

Back issues of volumes I, II and II are available from the museum as well as the companion volume England's Sons.  The museum periodically sells out and I re-supply as and when.  The museum is having problems updating its website but the best way to order/pre-order is to phone or e-mail it direct.  If there are any difficulties in that, send me a private message and I can send copies directly from me.

I am hoping to have them available from the NAM in 2018.

Frank is quite right about Steve and Fred.  There will be other members' essays in volume V and VI. It is really important that serious historians of the AZW have the opportunity and an outlet to publish well-researched, original, academic essays.

My copy of Volume IV has just arrived and I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you Julian for producing another quality publication. The high standard established in the first three volumes has been maintained and, with due modesty with regard to my own effort, I heartily recommend it. Hopefully it will not be long before copies drop through letter boxes from Santa in Brecon.

Frank of the least three packages of books I've sent to RSA since September, three have failed to arrive and one took nine weeks to arrive. Also the Royal Mail will not track parcels in RSA. A private firm will do it but it costs £66 each time - making the game not worth the candle.

My point exactly Julian. Some disks I bought from Andy took 5 months. But big moves are afoot on the whole political scene in South Africa at present, the trough is being cleared for the next batch.

Maybe I'm just getting a tad cynical. Shocked
