The Atlas of the Later Zulu Wars. 1883-1888.


The later Zulu Wars of the 1880s were a last ditch resistance to colonialism combined with bitter civil war,and their consequences proved more devastating for the Zulu people than the famous Anglo-Zulu War of 1879.They took place at a time of changing fighting methods and tactics for both the British and the Zulus-the last time the British Army went on campaign wearing scarlet was in Zululand in 1888.This book explains the nature of the diverse Zulu,British and Boer military forces fighting in Zululand,and the ways in which the British and the Boers fostered and exploited divisions among the Zulu people in order to maintain colonial control.
