It looks to be aimed more at adult ZULU film buffs, I guess that includes many of the AZW Community too.

Iíve reread the book by French, Lord Chelmsford And The Zulu War 1879.

This book annoys me, but there is an interesting account of a letter by Wood to Lord Chelmsford dated February 3rd (page 107) ...
