The Zulu War (Hardback)
Then and Now
The Zulu War Then and Now is a departure from the normal timescale covered by After the Battle and enables a completely fresh approach to be given to one of the most widely known military campaigns of the Victorian era. This is the first time that the battlefields of this classic conflict have been presented through After the Battle’s familiar ‘then and now’ photographic theme. Many graphic eyewitness accounts from both sides convey exactly what it was like to give battle in the 1870s. Additional chapters cover what remains to be seen today, both on the battlefields and in museums; the lonely and sometimes unmarked and forgotten graves of the participants; the British forts and their ruins, plus accounts of those film productions that have since been made of the 1879 war.
