Zulus by Ian Knight

Book Description

'A very remarkable people, the Zulu', the British Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, said on hearing of a fresh disaster in the war of 1879, 'They defeat our generals; they convert our bishops; they have settled the fate of a great European dynasty'. Remarkable indeed, to have taken on the full might of the British Empire at its height, and won, if not the war, at least some of the battles. This book explains who the Zulus were, and how they achieved the fame as warriors which they enjoy to this day.

British Infantryman vs Zulu Warrior by Ian Knight British Infantryman vs Zulu Warrior, Paperback (October 2013)

The short but savage Anglo-Zulu War of 1879 pitched well-equipped but complacent British soldiers into combat with the Zulu, one of history's finest fighting forces. This study traces the changing face of infantry combat in the Anglo-Zulu War.

New Zealand Wars, 1820-72 by Ian Knight New Zealand Wars, 1820-72, Paperback (March 2013)

Between 1845 and 1872, various groups of Maori were involved in a series of wars of resistance against British settlers. The Maori had a fierce and long-established warrior tradition and subduing them took a lengthy British Army commitment, only surpassed in the Victorian period by that on the North-West Frontier of India.
