THE ZULU WAR AND THE COLONY OF NATAL edited by Ga.A. Chadwick and E.G. Hobson
A scarce little book published by the Natal Provincial Administration for the centenary in 1979. It consists of a series of papers by different contributors mostly looking at aspects of colonial Natal's involvement with the Anglo-Zulu War. These include political and economic aspects of the war, how settler society in Natal coped during the war, the story of the Prince Imperial, the NNC and other Natal units, an excellent chapter on the Biggarsberg district (which includes Helpmekaar and Rorke's Drift) during the war, and the Rev. Owen Watkins' account of the services of the Edendale Horse. Hardback, illustrated. In good condition with a sticker on the title page covering previous owner's details. Dust wrapper a little knocked.
