The Zulu kingdom created on the eastern seaboard of southern Africa by King Shaka was robust, powerful and largely self-sufficient. But the royal rivalries within it, and the coming of the white colonialists, meant that internal and external conflict was inevitable. The first whites arrived in 1824; after 50 years of penetration by white traders and missionaries, the British felt compelled to use military force to break Zulu authority.

This book explores in compelling detail ten significant Zulu battles, from Thuleka in 1838, through the civil war of 1856 to the struggles of the 1879 Anglo-Zulu wars and beyond to 1906, when the Royal House was finally broken. There are stories of great bravery, of skill triumphant against superior weapon technology, of fantastic battlefield bravado. Here also is the sad story of the deliberate destruction of native power and culture by alien authority, driven by economic greed and religious intolerance.
