Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Anglo-Zulu War is a subject often obscured from history and put under the broader picture of colonialism. But this book proves that the Anglo-Zulu War is something that requires in depth study; not only for its social and military implications but for its unique place in history. It has plenty of pictures, the most I have ever seen of the Anglo-Zulu War, and is well written with clear and concise information that historians and non-historians can enjoy alike.

Excellent account of the English-Zulu War. More maps of locations mentioned in the narration would be helpful to understand the unfolding of the strategy. Also a glossary of some of the Zulu terms would be helpful. Otherwise an excellent read.

Format: Hardcover
...the most comprehensive history of the Anglo-Zulu War yet published. The result of years of research in Britain, South Africa, France, the United States, and Australia, it consists of more than 260 illustrations, most of which have never been published anywhere in the world before."

"Not just 'pretty pictures,' the illustrations have been carefully integrated with the text and have full captions assessing their historical significance."

"For the first time, great care has been taken to trace pictures of great Zulu commanders, personalities, and warriors and Brave Men's Blood therefore represents the most balanced image of the war available. The illustrations of the weapons, uniforms, and men in action bring to life the experiences of soldiers of both sides...."

This remarkable book was first published jointly by Greenhill (UK), Presidio (US), and Media House (South Africa) in 1990 in a large format superior to the later, smaller editions. 200 pp., cloth over boards with dustjacket, Glossary, Bibliography, Index.
