Rorke's Drift and Isandlwana

Great Battles

Ian F. W. Beckett

Great Battles

  • The Great Battles series. The story of the world's most important battles—how they were fought, how they have been commemorated, and the long historical shadows that they have cast.
  • The story of Britain's disatrous defeat at Isandlwana and successful defence of Rorke's Drift during the Anglo-Zulu War, and the myths which arose from the conflict.
  • Explores accounts of the battle and its political and cultural legacy—not just in Britain, but from the once overlooked Zulu perspective in the new South Africa.
