Lee Stevenson has a long-standing fascination with the Defence of Rorke’s Drift thanks to his late father, Ray, who sparked his interest with a gift of a book about the Anglo-Zulu war when Lee was fourteen. Forty years later, he is still researching the lives of the men who fought there and has written numerous articles for magazines and regimental journals. In 2003, along with his friend and fellow Rorke’s Drift enthusiast Alan Baynham-Jones, he published a collection of first-hand accounts and stories written by the defenders, Rorke’s Drift: By Those Who Were There. This is an expanded and updated version of that book.
