    Description

    In the aftermath of the Battles of Khambula and Gingindlovu, a lull fell over the war-torn Zulu Kingdom. Though British forces under Lord Chelmsford emerged victorious during both encounters, earlier defeats, casualties, and supply shortages required them to withdraw back into Natal. Now with waves of long-awaited reinforcements arriving, Chelmsford prepares to launch a second invasion of Zululand.

    Death and destruction have taken their toll on the Zulu people. Thousands of families mourn for their loved ones, while refugees flee from the devastation of the border regions. Despite the defeats and fearful losses, King Cetshwayo, who never wanted war in the first place, takes heart in knowing that, strategically, his enemies were compelled to retreat from his lands. He hopes this will allow him to come to terms with the British before Chelmsford can renew the war in earnest.

    Unbeknownst to the king, Lord Chelmsford has received word from London that he is to be replaced by General Sir Garnet Wolseley. His lordship is determined to expedite the invasion and utterly crush Cetshwayo’s forces at any cost, denying Wolseley the chance to usurp him before he can expunge the humiliation that has lingered since the dark days following the defeat at Isandlwana.

    Outstanding!

    The final chapter in one of the most epic and engaging series I’ve ever listened too! Thank your Mr. Mace for taking the time to accurately bring to life this tragic tale, you deserve the highest praise one can receive. Also, thank you Mr. Waters for the suburb narration!

    War is hell

    This war seem needless in the end because of all the losses on both sides the Zulu fighting for their land and their right to be there in the English troops fighting for queen and country. You have to read this whole selection of books they are so good they’ll make you cry and smile but they’re excellent I recommend them.

    Very interesting.

    The book was incredibly fascinating. I found it highly educational and the narration for the audiobook was fabulous. Jonathan Waters was intriguing and kept my rapt attention.
