HISTORY OF THE ZULU WAR AND ITS ORIGIN. N° de ref. de la librería
Sinopsis: Africa was always an uncharted territory as far as the colonial empires of the world were concerned. And owing to this aspect of seclusion from the rest of the world, the interest in African territory by the West increased manifold. It became a land of mystery and achievement for them. And therefore, the British arrived through the Cape of Good Hope, eager to hoist the Union Jack on these lands as well.But the tribals of the area, the Zulu people, were a force about which the British had no idea. And they were not aware of the warring capabilities of its people. What resulted as a consequence of British's expansionist programs in Africa was the commencement of one of the greatest battles in the history of the world, the Zulu War of 1879. Frances E Colenso, attached to the area during the war, recounts a marvelous description of the whole history of this war and narrates the entire story with unique imagery. First published in 1880. For the war enthusiast's private collection. A 'must have' book.
Descripción del libro: Written by the daughter of controversial Bishop of Natal John William Colenso, this account of the 1879 British-Zulu conflict is unusually sympathetic towards the plight of the Zulu population. Published in 1880, Frances Colenso's book was intended to support her father's outspoken criticism of the settlers' regime.
