The disaster at Isandlwana in 1879 focused the attention of the British public on a corner of the empire in which they had previously taken little interest - a war between the British Empire and the Zulu Kingdom.
Ploughshare of War is a study of the causes of the war and seeks to resolve the debates by bringing to bear additional evidence gathered from numerous sources over many years. It not only examines in detail South African events in the 1870s, but also reveals the global forces that were changing British imperial policy in this period.
