…Disaster


"In 1878, H.M. High Commissioner for Southern Africa and the Lieut. General Commanding H.M. Forces, clandestinely conspired to invade the Zulu Kingdom. Drastically underestimating their foe, within days of entering the Zulu Kingdom the invaders had been vanquished in one of the greatest disasters ever to befall a British army. The author not only dramatically describes the events leading up to the Battle of Isandlwana , and the battle itself but, with new evidence, disputes many aspects of the campaign long held sacrosanct."

Armand, looks like a great Christmas gift [to myself] for some cozy, winter time reading.
Thanks to you as always!

"…within days of entering the Zulu Kingdom the invaders had been vanquished…" That seems a stretch to me.
