Inhaltsangabe: This new series of paperback military history originals is set to revolutionize how selected conflicts and characters of history are studied. In comparison with other mid-format paperback series they contain extensive textual coverage - 50-55000 words - and are written by noted scholars and experts in the subjects, rather than non-specialist writers offering brief and inadequate coverage of a theme. Necessary illustrations and maps are included but are not provided to simply add pages to the book or fill vacant space
To the victors, the spoils.' This is not entirely accurate when applied to the Isandlwana battle for it saw the Zulu fighters give the British an unprecedented shock by their hard-earned victory but, in the process, lose so many of their number that it became clear they could not pursue their action against the Colonial force.
This masterly description of one of the most notorious military actions of the late 19th century is an ideal explanation of a complex battle for both seasoned historians and younger students and, as such, is a perfect title for this collector's series of military accounts.
Über den Autor: Ian Beckett is a highly respected military historian who has held senior posts at various teaching establishments here and overseas, including at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He is an expert on the history of counter-insurgency warfare and has written extensively on that topic. He lives in Cornwall.
