The Dust Rose Like Smoke. (The Subjugation of the Zulu and the Sioux)


Genuine comparitive history is rare,here the author has provided an admirably clear and concise example of this important approach to historical analysis.In 1876 Sioux and Cheyenne warriors annihilated Custers Seventh Cavalry on the Little Bighorn.Three years later and half a world away,a British force was wiped out by Zulu warriors at Isandlhwana in South Africa.In both cases the total defeat of regular army troops by forces regarded as undisciplined barbarian tribesmen stunned an imperial nation.
