Hi guys, I'm a first time poster so apologies if I missed an earlier thread on this...I'm currently working on a podcast series about the AZW and have lots of material about the central column and also Wood's column but very little on Pearson, Nyezane and the siege of Eshowe...Can anyone recommend the best books on the subject? Especially ones that may be available via kindle as I am currently in South Africa and ordering paper products from Amazon is a pain...

Hi there,

There is only one book that focuses entirely on Pearsonís Column that is Fearful Hard Times... by Ian Knight & Ian Castle.

There are other general Zulu War works that include the events of No. 1 Column.

If you need help with photographs or illustrations please pm me.

Hi John, many thanks - I've just had a look and sadly it seems that the book isn't available on Kindle which is a shame but I will order a second-hand version and keep my fingers crossed that it doesn't go missing in the South African mail...Thanks also for your kind offer of images - will definitely be in touch if I need any. All the best, Chris.
