I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

A straight forward re-telling of the 1879 battle at Isandhlwana between the Zulu Kingdom and British forces. Good explanations of the formation and battle plans of the British against overpowering odds. Well done.

I am not sure which came first, the book or the film produced Cy Endfield, anyway it is a great account of the battle at Isandlwana of 1879 in Natal when some 1500 British soldiers were slaughtered by the Zulus, the worst defeat of any modern army by a native people armed with nothing but spears/clubs and shields.
