The full, fascinating true story of the Anglo-Zulu conflict--responsible for some of the bloodiest battles in British history, including Rorke's Drift. Drawing on primary sources and original research, Schoeman's readable and accessible style is perfect for this single-volume study of the conflict.

"Dear Sister and Brother, death has been very busy gathering his harvest in this country...," wrote a soldier of the 80th Regiment from the brutal Anglo-Zulu War front in April 1879. "...War in all its horrors has been let loose..."

To date, no single battle has produced more Victoria Crosses than the eleven earned during the epic bloody battle at Rorke's Drift. Isandlwana to Ulundi is a compelling narrative of Lord Chelmsford's invasion of Zululand to conquer Zulu king Cetshwayo's royal capital of Ulundi. Through soldiers' letters from a ferocious front, war memoirs and other literary sources, a vivid picture is painted of the course of the conflict, the pressures of war on individuals and units, and of the harsh conditions under which they lived and fought.
