Zulu Rising: The Epic Story of iSandlwana and Rorke's Drift
'This is an extraordinary book, Knight's tour-de-force, and in the opinion of this reviewer, unlikely to be bettered.' --Military Illustrated`Exemplary military history exposes the bloody truth about the Anglo-Zulu war of 1879' --Sunday Times'...fine study of the Zulu War of 1879...Knight's ability to capture the reality of the fighting and his combination of precise detail with the bigger picture helps make this book a gripping read.' --BBC History Magazine'In this exceptional book, Ian Knight manages to expose many of the Victorian myths while still capturing the kind of epic excitement that makes Zulu so stirring. It is a first class work of military history, not least for its evocative and extensive use of Zulu sources.' --Sunday Times Culture, James McConnachie'Zulu Rising is a gripping read, by a brilliant storyteller.' --Armourer Magazine'I loved it ... full of fresh thinking, new ideas and new wisdom ... Instead of blood, some writers have a story running through their veins - Ian Knight is one of those writers and Isandlwana is his story.' --Neil Oliver, historian, archaeologist and television'The thirst for knowledge of the Zulu War of 1879 goes on... Ian Knight is surely now the doyen of the subject. His new book deals mainly with Isandlwana, but he has also had to tell the full story of the war. Zulu Rising is a compelling and authoritative account of the political gambits in the first phase of the war, together with a detailed account of Lord Chelmsford's columns venturing into Zululand and the battles that ensued... Zulu Rising is arguably the definitive work on the logistical mess that was Isandlwana.' --Times Literary Supplement, Stephen Wade'This is a book with many strengths. It gives an unrivalled feel for time and place...When I visited the battlefields I was struck by the proud dignity of the the Zulus I met, but as I close this fine book, I cannot help wondering if they show us more courtesy than we deserve.' --Literary Review - Richard Holmes'Deeply researched yet enthralling reading, this is a masterful study which meshes together both British and Zulu perspectives.' --Dr Adrian Greaves, Anglo-Zulu War Historical Society'Ian Knight, an acknowledged expert on the Zulu Wars has collated 30 years of research, some of it previously unpublished, to produce a definitive account of one of the most dramatic encounters in the whole history of Empire, collecting anecdotes and memories like the fragments of bone that littered the field of battle...These events 130 years ago, carry a modern resonance which Knight, in this tour de force, does not have to underline.' --The Daily Mail-Christopher Hudson'This magisterial but grippingly readable account is the culmination of a lifetime's informed and critical engagement with the battles of iSandlwana and Rorke's Drift. Ian Knight knows firsthand every hill and donga of the two battlefields, is long familiar with the local people and their oral history, and is immersed in the archival evidence. Writing at the top of his form, and drawing fully on the vivid reports and reminiscences of the Zulu and British protagonists he so masterfully portrays, he succeeds in evoking the painfully stirred passions of men at war. Yet, at the same time, he presents the convoluted, confusing, sometimes obscure dynamics of the ebb and flow of battle with quite admirable clarity and assurance. In the process he disposes convincingly of the hoary legends that have grown up about the battles, and demolishes poorly founded more recent interpretations. The result is a compelling, wide-ranging and even-handed study that is now the definitive one in the field.' --Professor John Laband'This new history by Ian Knight is thorough and definitive. Knight uses first-hand sources, both Zulu and British, with admirable even-handedness, to examine the bloody clash between two different warrior traditions. Archaeological evidence from the battlefield is also used to excellent effect.' --Sunday Telegraph
