Little more than 50 years passed between the first shipwrecked British traders to reach Zululand and the subjugation of the Zulus following the war of 1879. Including more than 80 illustrations and archive photographs, this history charts how the powerful and extensive Zulu nation was gradually diminished by successive waves of British ingress, first by traders and missionaries and eventually by soldiers and administrators who drew the Zulu King into a war that he had tried to avoid.
