Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The Anglo-Zulu War was one of many colonial campaigns of British imperialism. The conflict, fought against a native adversary that the British initially underestimated, is remarkable for battles that included perhaps the most humiliating defeat in British military history-the Battle of Isandlwana on January 22, 1879-and one of the most heroic feats of martial arms-the defense of Rorke's Drift on January 22-23, 1879.

Abstract:

The Anglo-Zulu War was one of many colonial campaigns of British imperialism. The conflict, fought against a native adversary that the British initially underestimated, is remarkable for battles that included perhaps the most humiliating defeat in British military history-the Battle of Isandlwana on January 22, 1879-and one of the most heroic feats of martial arms-the defense of Rorke's Drift on January 22-23, 1879. Although it lasted only six months, it is one of the most examined, studied, and debated conflicts in Victorian military history.

War, 1879: A Selected Bibliography is a research guide and tool for identifying obscure publications and source materials to encourage continued original and thought-provoking contributions to this popular field of historical study. From the student or neophyte to the more experienced historian or scholar, this selected bibliography is a must-have for anyone interested in the 1879 Anglo-Zulu War. --Book Jacket.
