Overview

Though their fierce and effective battles have become legendary, most of the Zulu commanders remain faceless, often unfairly stereotyped as "noble savage warriors." Look beyond this misleading image and explore the careers and tactics of the celebrated Shaka Zulu; King Cetshwayo, who guided the anti-British strategy in 1879; Cetshwayo's son, Dinizulu, the last Zulu king to lead men into battle himself; Chief Bambatha, who headed the last resistance to colonial rule; and others. Their stories span the rise and fall of this mighty kingdom, and provide insights into the struggle against European encroachment.
