Zulu Wars by Ian Castle

Book Description

One aspect of the Zulu War remains largely unexamined: the important part played by the local white volunteers and irregulars (who provided the bulk of the cavalry), and the Africans fighting with the British against the Zulus. This book tells the colourful and exciting story of these locally raised frontier units - particularly the volunteer and irregular cavalry - at Isandlwana and several other dramatic battles of the Zulu War. Ian Castle's primary research in South African archives has uncovered many fascinating details and rare photographs, some of which have never been published before.
