Overview

A graphic novel depicting the Zulu War of 1879 which led to a catastrophic defeat for the British followed by an incredible and heroic stand of epic proportions is told in gripping narrative fashion in this illustrated novel.

As the mighty British empire forced the region of South Africa into war, the famed Zulu nation, first formed under the brilliant yet cruel Shaka-Zulu, inflicted the first blow---a devastating massacre which shook the entire world to its core.

The next day, a small garrison at Roarke's Drift felt the onslaught of the Zulu army but in one of the most revered "last stands", the occupiers managed to hold off the Zulus and were awarded more Victorian Crosses than any battle had been before. This is the story of the two battles...one that proved Britain was no longer invincible and the other which led to the demise of the Zulu Empire.

"...a well-written recounting of the Zulu War of 1879. .. gets behind the story to analyze its root causes, the battles of the war, and its long-lasting effects..."---Atomic Avenue

"Wayne Reid always delivers great art appropriate to any setting."---Rafael Nieves, Author of Tales From the Heart and Edgar Allan Poe's The Bells.

"This is how history should be told. Educational, enlightening, and enjoyable."---Robert W. Scott, Checking the Shelves.
