How it works


When he wrote this little classic, which historians of the period rank alongside Morris\'s more famous Washing of The Spears, Sir Reginald Coupland was the foremost living authority on the history of the British Empire. In Zulu Battle Piece he describes, with swift and vivid strokes, the situation between whites and blacks, the great military qualities and terrifying military tactics of the Zulu warriors and the characters of the Englishmen, soldiers and politicians, involved in the disaster.In his new introduction to this readable and concise work Ian Knight discusses Coupland\'s views in the light of more recent thinking and sets the book in its proper historical and literary perspective.Dustcover,and maps to front endpaper.144 pages text with maps and illustrations.
