Under the reading lamp 2
It also gives a very detaled account of the ways of recruitment the different formations and ways of deployment in battle not only of the British but also the Zulu. You read about why the trusty Red Line fails to stop the horde of Zulu Warriors and dramatic details hat did eally happened through accounts of witnesses.
For the wargamer in us you will find the biggest list of Zulu names for the different Officers and Regiments hints about detailing the games and pushing rules maybe in a different direction. For those with a shortage of space you read about parts of the battle and get hints about recreating on your tabletop. Some what if's like what if Lord Chelmsford have known the deployment of the Zulu some time before and not only when the did arrive so short to the camp?? Could Anthony Durnford men make a change if the had more time and space for their fall back manouver?? Or did he just needed more men?? And last but not least could one or more battalions with Colonel Pulleine make a drastic difference??
Highly recommended book also for those not overmuch interested in colonial warfare.
