Isandlwana 1879 : The Great Zulu Victory Paperback

Part of the Osprey Military Campaign S. series

Description

On 20 January 1879, the Centre Column of the British invasion force under the British Commander in Chief Lord Chelmsford, reached Isandlwana.

Chelmsford's spies suggested a Zulu army was on its way to attack, so on 21 January he took a strong force of auxiliaries into the hills to scout them, leaving some 1700 white and native troops at camp.

This action was futile as the main Zulu army of 24,000 men had moved across his front and was marching towards Isandlwana.

This title employs new research to describe the formidable battle in greater detail, providing a brand new interpretation of the course of the action.
