Looks like you like Osprey Books. Well, here is a list I recommend from them:
"The South Wales Borderers" Men-At-Arms Series
"Zulu War-Volunteers, Irregulars and Auxiliaries" Men-At-Arms Series #388
"ZULU 1816-1906" Warrior Series #14 by Ian Knight
"The Zulus" Elite Series #21 by Ian Knight
"British Forces in Zululand 1879" Elite Series #32 by Ian Knight
"Zulu War 1879" Campaign Series #14 by Ian Knight
"Rorke's Drift 1879" Campaign Series #41 by Ian Knight
"Isandlwana 1879" Campaign Series #111 by Ian Knight
Hope that list has helped you.

Oh thats quite all right, Sir! I found a great list which has most books if not every book about the Zulu WAR and BOER WAR
I can copy the site if you all would like!!!

I have to say it - the definitive book on the whole Zulu campaign is "The Washing of the Spears," by a chap named Morris - an American, no less!!
First published in 1965, yes 1965 - it has been
reprinted many times, but you may have problems finding it. I THINK, (though not sure), my copy was published by Picador. You could try the RRW Regimental Museum at Brecon.
