Commendations go to Ron Lock on his works titled as above.
Ron's writing style is crisp and succinct and goes to the core of the subject quickly. He takes many tilts at the establishment exposing the numerous personnel and institutional faults that led to the disaster called Isandlwana .
He takes time too to list a number of brave actions recorded in the annals which, ordinarily, would have been the subject of bravery awards, but for which none were issued this time by the BA- all because Chelmsford did not want publicity exposing his ineptitude, but rather worked hard and somewhat successfully at a massive cover-up. This involved convincing subordinates around him to engage in bare faced mendacity vis-a-vis the causes. Sad indeed.
This is another one for the avid AZW devotee's bookshelf and coupled to recent works by other authors on this forum will only now at last start to tell the real story of that ignominious battle.
