Victorian Colonial Warfare. Africa,from the campaigns against the Kaffirs to the South African War.

£20.00

The ‘small war’ was a particularly Victorian concern.Its course was followed with avid interest by the general puplic.Every setback and victory,every act of courage and cowardice was recorded and illustrated in the pages of the local press.Nowhere was this more true than of Africa where small wars came in three distinct types;campaigns of conquest or annexation,such as the 1879 campaign against Cetshwayo’sZulu Impis;campaigns for the suppression of an insurrection,such as those in East and West Africa.All the stories are told here in this well illustrated volume.
