'Ashes and Blood; The British Army in South Africa 1795-1914' - hefty (500 pages +) and rare catalogue produced in 1999 to accompany the National Army Museum centenary Anglo-Boer War exhibition. It's subject matter is much, wider, however, ranging from the Cape Frontier Wars up to the First World War, and including a lot of material on the conquest of Zululand. It consists of articles by various experts - including John Laband and Ian Knight - illustrated with colour photographs of exhibits in the Museum's collection - as such it is probably the largest collection of artefacts to this period which has yet been assembled and documented. It includes a number of Anglo-Zulu War items. It's a heavy paperback book and now hard to find - generally in good/very good sound condition, contents clean, but some small knocks to the edges (and a dog-ear to the back cover) commensurate with being such a large used. paperback. Postage, alas, reflects the weight!
