The proud Zulu people that the British finally managed to subjugate in 1879 were not indigenous to South Africa but had emerged from tribes that migrated from the north during the first millennium CE. This book traces the history of the Zulus from their arrival in South Africa to the war with the British and examines their growth in power and influence in the intervening period, including a review of their weapons and tactics in battle.
