THE FALL OF RORKE'S DRIFT: An Alternate History of the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879
After that brutal defeat on 22 January 1879 at Isandlwana, the British Army is at Rorke's Drift on the Buffalo River in Natal Province, South Africa. A few hundred British and colonial troops led by Lieutenants John Chard of the Royal Engineers and Gonville Bromhead face the might of the Zulu army of thousands led by Prince Dabulamanzi kampande (CORR). Against the odds, the British are victorious and this defeat marks the end of the Zulu nation's dominance of the region. But what if the Zulus had defeated the British at Rorke's Drift and invaded Natal?
In this alternate history of the Anglo-Zulu War, historian John Laband offers a tantalizing glimpse of a very different outcome weaving a compelling and never-before told story of what could have been.
