Recounts how and why, in January 1879, at the remote African crag called Isandlwana, a force of nearly 1,500 British Regular and Colonial troops experienced in African warfare, armed with modern rifles, well supplied, and encamped at their leisure on ground of their own choosing came to be annihilated by a tribal people armed mostly with spears. Includes some 150 photographs and drawings, with maps of the battlefields and movements, and with color paintings of the fighting men. No index. Distributed by Combined Books, Inc. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
