This is the third book in the new Combat series from Osprey which looks at soldiers who faced each other in battle. The book compares the fighting styles and tactics of the British and Zulus in three very different battles -- Nyezane (22 January 1879), iSandlwana (22 January 1879), and Khambula (29 March 1879). Accounts from combatants on both sides are included. Besides the period black and white photos and artwork, there are color maps, color photos of the battlefields as they appear today, and weapons carried by British troops and Zulus. Illustrator Peter Dennis has done some excellent panoramic paintings of the battles as well as full-page illustrations of both a British infantryman and a typical Zulu warrior.
