Description

Vols 1 & 2' by Ian Knight and Adrian Greaves, published by Pen and Sword Books. The idea behind the 'Who's Who in the Zulu War' is to provide basic biographical information on prominant people who were involved in the Anglo-Zulu campaign. So often, reading standard histories, the reader is left to ponder 'what was his background? What became of him?'; these books are an attempt to answer some of those questions, and to put military activity in 1879 within the context of individual lives. Volume One covers British troops, including the senior British commanders, VC winners, and others who played a significant or controversial role in the war; Volume Two covers Colonial and Zulu participation. The latter includes powerful political figures like the Shepstones and Colensos, but also less well-known people whose lives form part of the threads of the war, including James Rorke, Otto Witt, George Hamilton Browne and George Mossop. A number of Zulu personalities are considered, ranging from King Cetshwayo and his senior commanders to men like Mkhosana Biyela or Sitshishili kaMnqandi, for whom biographical information is not available
