Description - The Washing Of The Spears by Donald R. Morris

THE WASHING OF THE SPEARS is the definitive account of a tragic and awe-inspiring story; the rise of the Zulu nation in southern Africa and its fall under Cetshwayo in the Zulu war of 1879. For more than a century after the European landing at Capetown in the C17th, the Boers had advanced unopposed into the vast interior of Africa. It was not until 1824 that Europeans came face to face with another expanding and imperial power, the Zulus - the most formidable nation in black Africa. That confrontation eventually culminated in a bitter war between the Zulu warriors and Victoria's British Army. It was the last despairing effort of africans to stem the tide of white civilisation. The result was a dramatic, legendary, and bloody defeat at Isandhlwana for the British; the aftermath was the defeat and fall of the remarkable Zulu nation.
