Can one of you gentlemen recommed a good book covering the battles of Gingindlovu and Ulundi only. These are two battles that here in America I am having trouble getting information on. RD, Islandwhana no problem but these two are tough to find info on. Even a good website would help.

I take it you've read:

Otherwise try 'The Battle of Ulundi' by John Laband, published in 1988, isbn 0796001189.

As for book just on "Gin, gin I love you", I don't think there is one. Obviously a number of works include the action - try Knight & Castle's 'Fearful Hard Times' by Greenhill, which relates to the siege of Eshowe.
