The defeat of the Zulu nation After the disastrous defeat of the British Army under Chelmsford at Isandhlwana the British Government quickly realised that the subjugation of the Zulus would be no short or easy task. As a result reinforcements were sent to Natal and the writer of this book, an officer in the 94th Regiment was among them. In his chronicle of the campaign he provides the reader with an entirely different view of this famous war of massacres and heroic stands. His was a long gruelling campaign of hot, uncomfortable soldiering under adverse conditions as the Zulu Nation was conclusively defeated at Ulundi and King Cetawayo, his chiefs and remaining warriors were brought to ruin. A rare, valuable and different insight into another aspect of the Zulu War.
