How it works


The story of the Zulu Campaign. By Major Ashe (late King's Dragoon Guards), author of "The Military Institutions of France," &c., and Captain the Hon. E. V. Wyatt Edgell (17th Lancers, killed at Ulundi). Dedicated by special permission to Her Imperial Majesty the Empress Eugenie (her son, the Prince Imperial Louis Napoleon, was killed by the Zulus in Zululand. He was the last dynastic hope of the Bonapartes and his death sent shockwaves throughout Europe).

xv + 408 pp. With map.

'Commencing with a short history of the Zulus from the time of Chaka, the volume gives a résumé of their quarrels with the Boers, down to the commencement of the war between Cetywayo and the English. A vivid picture is drawn of the battles, sieges, and more important incidents of the campaign, including the death of the Prince Imperial and the capture of Cetywayo.' -Mendelssohn Vol.I., page 54.

A tight, square copy with new spine and old spine neatly laid down.
