By Clive Dickens
Well we have yet anther book published on Isandlwana it is in The focus series of Brasseys and is available online at chrysalisbooks.co.uk, although my bookshelves are groaning at the weight of other books on this battle I have decided to give it a try , I will let you know what I think of it when I receive it.and have read it.

I've got my copy already - quick off the mark me! At last another researcher has Cavaye commanding `E' co. not `A' co. 24th.
I don't know what you think Clive, but a few more photographs would have been nice!!
Not a bad book though.

Although the text is very matter of fact, what it lacks are photographs as Adrian states above. Some very strange choices of illustrations as well - what the 91st has to do with Isandlwana is beyond me.
More and better photographs would have helped.

Not seen it yet. Does it say anything new or present any new evidence or is it a re-hash?
Who's the author (I couldn't find it on the chrysalis website)?

It's ok but, as mentioned above, it is matter of fact. It lacks the emotional impact of Donald Morris' description.
