Product description

2005. In 'How Can Man Die Better' Lieutenant Colonel Mike Snook offers a detailed analysis of the Isandlwana campaign and the British defeat at the hands of the Zulus, as well as a new hypothesis of the battle and numerous fresh insights. 22 January 1879 was one of the most dramatic days in the long and distinguished history of the British Army. At noon a massive Zulu host attacked the 24th Regiment in its encampment at the foot of the mountain of Isandlwana, a distinctive feature that bore an eerie resemblance to the Sphinx badge of the outnumbered redcoats. Disaster ensued. Later that afternoon the victorious Zulus would strike the tiny British garrison at Rorke's Drift. How Can Man Die Better is a unique analysis of Isandlwana v of the weapons, tactics, ground, and the intriguing characters who made the key military decisions. Because the fatal loss was so high on the British side there is still much that is unknown about the battle v until now. Includes maps and photographs.
No dust jacket, but very good condition.
