By Rattray, David; Volume editor Greaves, Adrian
The surge of public interest in the Zulu War has been quite extraordinary. While in part attributable to increased tourism and the hugely successful film Zulu, one man above all others is responsible - namely David Rattray. Known to many thousands for his emotional and evocative ...lectures, he also owns a top battlefield-touring lodge Fugitive Drift, close to Iswandlwana and Rorke's Drift. This is David Rattray's first publication (his cassettes and videos have sold thousands) and the power of his name will be considerable. No one is better qualified to explain the causes of this strange colonial war when British Imperial might was initially humiliated in a ghastly slaughter. Pride was somewhat salvaged by the heroic defence of Rorke's Drift and thereafter the Zulus were doomed. Today the battlefields are frequently visited and this attractive book is the perfect companion, being both authoritative, well illustrated and highly accessible.Read more
