"(The) definitive account of a tragic and awe-inspiring story: the rise of the Zulu nation in southern Africa under the great ruler Shaka , and its fall under Cetshwayo in the Zulu War of 1879. For more than a century after the European landing at Capetown in the seventeenth century, the Boers had advanced unopposed into the vast interior of Africa. It was not until 1824 that E u r o p e ans came face to face with another expanding and imperial power, the Zulus - the most formidable nation in black Africa. That confrontation eventually culminated in a bitter war betwen the Zulu warriors and Victoria's British Army. It wa s th e la st despairing effort of Africans to stem the tide of white civilization. The result was a dramatic, legendary, and bloody defeat at Isandhlwana for the British; the aftermath was the defeat and fall of the remarkable Zulu nation."
