The Road to Isandhlwana.The Years of an Imperial Battalion


Overdue for a home posting,a British imperial battalion-1/24th-is taken to Natal to spearhead an invasion of Zululand.Less than two weeks later-on the 22nd. January 1879-more than 400 of its officers and men lie dead on the battlefield at Isandhlwana.The gripping account of this bloody battle constitutes the climax of a story which begins four years earlier,with the arrival of the 1/ the Cape of Good Hope on New Years Day 1875.
