I think you would not be far wrong in going to the web site of Amazon they cover most books that are in print on the Anglo/Zulu war for the more hard to get, the the web site of Stephen Hopkins who deals in secound hand books in good conditionn for him go to Links on left hand column, and Amazon there internet address is www.
I trus that this will be of help.

www.Abebooks deal with rare and out-of-print publications - I have bought some good books from this site.

The best option for many of the good primary source material is not to buy them but to use bibliographies and go to your library service and get them through interlibrary loan OR if you can get to the British Library or another copyright library, read them in situ and make notes or get pages copied.

try this site! The RRW has an exellent book service with more than a heavy slant on the AZW, I ordered The Noble 24th, had it in a couple of days. Plus the cash goes to a good source!.
Good starters are Brave Mens Blood, (knight), Zulu victory, and The Zulu wars then and now (Knight and Castle). The Hill of the Shoinx is also excellent.
