It appears a new book about these battles is to be released, hopefully by the looks of it, as a time-related project a bit like the book I bought about the Little Bighorn a few years ago -

It will be interesting to see what it contains, not before known, which would makes it a worthwhile read. It does say it follows the lives of some of those who took part.

Iíve just received the hardback copy of the book.

On quickly glancing through it, there are several black and white photographs, maps and some nice images in colour.

The print is a a good size instead of straining your eyes, obviously each section of the timing is in small paragraphs, explaining what is happening at that moment.

Looks interesting and quite possibly a quick read, though question why Rorkeís Drift is before Isandhlwana on the front cover, but that is a minor issue, additionally the cover illustration differs from that advertised.

Ah, well, as not at present reading a book, will make a start on this one today.

Morning, Rorke's Drift is before Isandhlwana on the front cover because historically, that's the order that the films were made Very Happy

Happy New Year all.

Best regs, Col.
