BOILING CAULDRON Utrecht District and the Anglo-Zulu War 1879

Spring Sale: £3.19

The subject of this book is both wider and narrower than the subtitle suggests, for it covers the whole history of what became known as ‘the disputed territory’, in the upper Phongolo basin, from over fifty years before the outbreak of the Anglo-Zulu War up until the immediate aftermath of the battle of Hlobane. Its theme is that this disastrous military encounter (from the British point of view) was the result, not just of inept military planning, but of tensions and conflicts which had been developing in the area for many years before.
