Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Osprey's study of the battle of Isandlwana, which was fought on 22 January 1879 and was the greatest defeat suffered by the British Army during the Zulu War (1879). A Zulu army of 24,000 warriors had moved undetected to within striking distance of the British camp in the shadow of Isandlwana Mountain. From the start the 1,700 defenders underestimated the danger descending upon them. They were swept aside with horrifying speed and the final stage of the battle consisted of desperate hand-to-hand fighting amid the British camp. Over 1,300 men were killed; scarcely 60 Europeans survived. Ian Knight employs new archaeological and historical research to provide a completely new interpretation of the course of the battle.

Synopsis:

This title is a study of Isandlwana, the most famous battle of the Zulu War, and the greatest defeat of the British Army during the entire Victorian era. The volume presents evidence from an archaeological dig in 2000, which offers a new interpretation of the battle's course of action.
