As usual with Mr.Knights books, a well written, easy to read work. The account itself that of the life and death of Prince Louis Napoleon in Zululand is fascinating and give a great insight into the mores and morality of Victorian England.It is a very detailed and insightful account and any student of military history should enjoy it very much.
