This book explores the extensive fortifications constructed around posts such as Eshowe, Fort Pearson and Fort Chelmsford, as well as the lives of the garrisons who manned these sites. These forts were built to defend against infantry attacks of overwhelming numbers, as opposed to artillery bombardment or mining, and the text, illustrations and photographs describe their distinctive style and construction.
Field and temporary fortifications are also covered, making this a packed and informative reference work, and bringing new life to this popular subject. Added to basket. The Anarchy.

British Fortifications in Zululand 1879
ISBN 13: 9781841768298
On 11 January the British Empire went to war with the independent kingdom of Zululand. The British anticipated a swift and decisive victory, placing great faith in modern firepower; no plans were made for suppressing the Zulu over a protracted period, or for providing defensive positions from which to occupy Zulu territory. This title explores British defensive techniques employed during the war, and how these related to contemporary engineering theory. Your wishlist has been temporarily saved.
