The Anglo-Zulu war was one in a brutal series of interconnected and overlapping wars which the British wages between 1877-1879 to crush and disarm the remaining independent black states of South Africa.

Deftly fusing the widely differing European and African perspectives on events, John Laband details the fateful decisions of individual leaders and generals and explores why many Africans chose to join the British and colonial forces. The Xhosa, Zulu, and other African military cultures are brought to vivid life, showing how varying notions of warrior honor and manliness influenced the outcomes for African fighting men and their societies.
