An eirie similarity to the Battle Of Isandhlwana in 1879 would be the Battle Of The Little Big Horn in 1876; in 1876 the Sioux and Cheyenne Indians annihilated Custer's Seventh Cavalry, three years later across the world in Africa, the Zulus at The Battle Of Isandhlwana annihilated a Major British Force. In both instances what was thought to be inferior and uncivilized savages, with primitive weapons, defeated Modern Armies.

The Washing of the Spears : The Rise and Fall of the Zulu Nation

Morris, Donald R

New York, New York, U.S.A.: Simon & Schuster, 1965. 655pp, 76 b&w photos & illus., maps, notes on Zulu orthography, sources, bibliography, index, Stated - 1st Printing. "The Washing of the Spears" is the definitive account of the bloody and tragic story of the rise of the Zulu nation under the great ruler Shaka, and its fall under Cetshwayo in the Zulu War of 1879. For over a century after the European landing at Capetown in the 17th century, the Boers advanced unopposed into the vast interior of Africa. It was not until 1824 that Europeans came face to face with another expanding and imperial power, the Zulus -- the most formidable nation in black Africa. That confrontation ignited a prolonged struggle, which culminated in a bitter war, the last despairing effort of Africans to stem the tide of white civilization. The result was a dramatic, legendary, and bloody defeat at Isandhlwana for the British; the aftermath was the defeat and fall of the remarkable Zulu nation.~ The Zulus challenged the might of Victorian England, and armed only with their spears, their rawhide shields and their incredible courage, they inflicted upon the British the worst defeat a modern army has ever suffered at the hands of savages. The record of that war is studded with tales of unparalleled drama. Stated First Printing. Clean . 1st Printing. Cloth. Very Good+/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Washing of the Spears (First Edition)

Morris, Donald R

New York: Konecky Konecky, 1965. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. Illustrated. This is a study of the rise of the Zulu nation under their ruler, Shaka, and its fall under Cetshwayo. It seeks to provide an account of the trials, errors and triumphs of Imperial policy in Natal on the eve of the Boer wars and to give an unprejudiced analysis of the British-Boer involvement with the Zulu nation. In 1879, armed only with spears and rawhide shields, the Zulus challenged the British army and initially inflicted the worst defeat ever suffered by an army from men without guns. The story is full of drama and heroism - the Battle of Islandhlwana, when the Zulu army wiped out the British column, and Rorke's Drift, when a handful of British troops beat off thousands of Zulu warriors and won eleven Victoria Crosses. This is a new edition of a book first published 20 years ago which is still considered to be the standard work on the Zulu wars. It has been widely acclaimed for its scholarship, range and readability. Silver cloth with gold spine lettering. Previous owner's name written on front free end-paper. There is no other writing in the book. Illustrated. 655pp., index. Full refund if not satisfied.
