From the cover: “The Anglo-Zulu War of 1879 has become synonymous with Britain’s humiliating defeat at Isandlwana and the heroic defence of Rorke’s Drift. But these celebrated actions were only part of a campaign that lasted for more than six months and resulted in the Zulu kingdom’s destruction. Zulu Vanquished explores the events that not only led to the initial British defeat at Isandlwana but allowed Chelmsford the opportunity to launch his second invasion, which concluded with the eventual torching of the Zulu capital of oNdini on the Ulundi plain.

Founded on a wealth of first-hand accounts, some published for the first time, as well as the authors’ intimate knowledge of the history and terrain of Zululand, this book is a groundbreaking work that sheds light on the wider Anglo-Zulu conflict and will prove indispensable for scholars and enthusiasts alike.”
