On 22 January 1879, a 20,000-strong Zulu army attacked 1700 British and colonial forces. The engagement saw primitive weapons of spears and shields clashing with the latest military technology. However, despite being poorly equipped, the Zulu force crushed the British troops. This book tells the story.
