A Good Read. Historical fiction based in Africa during the Zulu conflict with the British and well done. The story tracks the history and kept my interest. I enjoyed it

5.0 out of 5 stars There is historic information in this tale.
As always the author creates characters whose courage rises from the pages he pens. The characters are created by an author who makes them live, breathe, makes their voices ring in your ears. Oh this one is very well worth the price you will pay no matter which version you buy. Another great book by a truly gifted writer.

One of the best
A great novel. Strong plot line. Superb character development. Excellent action sequences. A re-flection of a very thorough research project dealing with the Zulu war. Strongly recommend it.
Everything about this book was perfect. Well written, well-researched and well told. It is a story that will leave you wishing it would not end.
Great story not just the tale of the famous struggle with the Zulus but the actions and the early aftermath and how and wear the kingdom was overcome.
Enjoyed the insight into the Zulu Wars, a subject that I have very little experience with. The character development was excellent, and the author did a good job of detailing both sides of the conflict. The story itself drew me in from the very start. Books like this are the reason I so enjoy historic novels. My first experience with Malcolm Archibald, and I certainly was not disappointed. Looking forward to reading more of his work.
