The Imperial War Museum Book of The Somme by Malcolm Brown.

The National Army Museum Book of The Zulu War by Ian Knight.

The Map of Africa by Eddy Nugent :thumright:

The only question is what order to read them in?? :)
Read , the book of the somme 1st, then the Map of africa to cheer you up. Mrs G had to banish me from reading the Map in bed as my constant laughing out loud and near swamping wasn't going down too well.
Seems like sound advice; I was bad enough reading "Picking Up The Brass", giggling like a schoolgirl drove her mental.


Book Reviewer
Ian Knight has written another book on the Zulu War? Christ, where does he dredge up new material?

I met him at University of Kent in 1987 and he already had a couple of Zulu books under his belt then. Mind you, kudos to him for writing about a war that the public seems to have an insatiable appetite for.
