VICTORIA’S HARVEST: THE IRISH SOLDIER IN THE ZULU WAR OF 1879

£25.00 £2.99

This book tells the story of some of the Irish men who served as soldiers in Queen Victoria’s Army, before, during and after the Zulu War of 1879. Men who fought not necessarily for a queen or a country, but most often for their regiment; a regiment that had seen numerous fellow Irishmen and often preceding family members serve in its ranks.
This book is not about the Zulu War of 1879 per se, enough has already been written on that account. It is the story of some of those Irishmen who volunteered for service in Queen Victoria’s Army and found themselves involved in not only the greatest defeat of the British soldier at the hands of a native enemy, but some remarkable victories.
