We learn for the first time of the complex Zulu decoy, the dishonorable attempt to blame Colonel Durnford for the defeat, evidence of another ‘fugitives’ trail’. The identity of previously unknown escorts for Lts Coghill and Melville, both awarded VCs for trying to save the Colors.
Isandlwana is a brilliant and fresh account of this most famous battle which will fascinate experts and laymen alike.
