Some new research I'm publishing

A while ago I made a number of posts concerning the Durnford Papers. I was deliberately cagey in my responses because I told you that I hoped I would be re-publishing and updating an article on them in the near future to which would be added photographs of the original documents as they were when found (I.e. not as they are now).

I also completed my researches into the newspaper article headed ‘A Brave Fugitive’, a discussion of which also occurred on another forum, and promised that this would be available soon.

Several of you e-mailed me to ask when the research would be forthcoming and of course I’ve been very busy with it. However, both these articles and a third are now published under the title ‘Studies in the Zulu War 1879: I’. It contains 81 pages and is produced in A4 paperback format with glossy cover; the three articles are entitled:
Isandhlwana and the Durnford Papers by F. W. D. Jackson and myself
A Brave Fugitive: An Anonymous Account of Isandhlwana by myself
“An Englishman in outlandish places…”: Anthony Trollope and Lieut. Nathaniel Newnham-Davis in South Africa, 1877 by myself

I am not interested in making money from this but I would like two museums to benefit from their sale. Accordingly the book is available only through the Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh, Brecon (Bill Cainan) and its website and, it is intended, through the shop at the Royal Engineers’ Museum, Chatham (I am awaiting their consent on this).

I intend to re-publish previously-published (but difficult to obtain), updated articles together some new ones under the same title – I currently have enough for nine further volumes of similar length – and these will appear gradually over the next three to four years. Volume II is almost finished.

I hope you enjoy reading them and it'll cause some debate here!

Will add it to my (very long) list of books to buy. From a personal perspective, the article on the Durnford Papers sounds intriguing.

I have ordered a copy, but please note your first post has an incorrect phone number.

Also, I tried to look at the shop but the link did not seem to work.

Regards
